About the Festival.
BECAUSE THEY’RE FUNNY (BTF), is a new comedy festival showcasing comedic talent within BIPOC communities. BTF’s mission is to elevate the image of stand-up comedy as an art form, propel a new generation of diverse comedians and content creators to stardom, and promote entertainment in the comedy genre that features people of color.
Created for industry insiders and casual fans alike, the BTF lineup will feature headline acts, standup showcases, industry workshops, panels, screenings and parties.
The inaugural event, in partnership with Events DC, will take place along the Wharf, a popular entertainment hub on Washington, DC’s southwest waterfront, from October 6-8, 2023.
