If you really want tickets to individual shows and events, including registration for workshops, they can be found here. However, this whole weird weekend will be infinitely more fun if you plan ahead by purchasing one of the following rad passes.
The Green Gravel Comedy Fest is a weekend of the finest alternative comedy in the heart of Iowa! Our 2017 fest takes place May 12-13 around downtown Iowa City through the support of local volunteers, sponsors, performers and fans who make funny business happen at home.
Our mission for 2017 is simple: all of our proceeds will go to benefit the ACLU Action Fund and Planned Parenthood of Iowa. This year’s guests will include acts that you won’t see at your average comedy show. With free and accessibly-priced talkbacks, Q&A’s, performances and/or workshops, GGCF has been committed to the growth of greater comedy in the heartland since 2014.
As the first major comedy fest in Iowa, our programming has brought laughs in the form of stand-up, improv, sketch, shorts, podcasts and animated material; previous guests have included Kevin McDonald (The Kids in the Hall), Pete Holmes (Crashing), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and many more that can be found in our archives.
GGCF is proud to be staffed by alumni of The University of Iowa who are passionate about the process of comedy, from creation to celebration. Except for Keeler, he’s weird like that. Please click on our Staff page for more details about our work!
