What's Next: Career in Comedy Q&A + Funny, Video Please!

This year, Floodwater Comedy Festival 2018 is excited to host an awesome double-header event, presented by Spencer Griffin! Spencer is an Iowa alumni who has gone on to executive produce CollegeHumor, the series Adam Ruins Everything, Hot Date and more. 

In Part 1 of this event, Spencer will relate his experiences and perspectives about working in the comedy industry, and how you can try to start a career that works for you. The business side of comedy can be confounding to approach, and he's here to answer our questions. An onstage interview will first be conducted by Floodwater producer Leela Bassuk. Spencer will then field questions from the audience.

In Part 2 of this event, we will screen the lucky finalists for Floodwater's 2018 video short contest, Funny Video, Please! Following this screening, contest winners will be announced-- including the Grand Prize recipient, who will be awarded $100 and a 1-on-1 mentorship meeting with Spencer Griffin.

Submissions for Funny Video, Please! close on February 25th. It's not too late to submit!
