Who We Are

The Big Pine Comedy Festival first arrived in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2015.

Big Pine Comedy Festival, Inc. is an educational non-profit 501 c(3) organization, committed to enriching the arts community through the celebration of live art and art education. Big Pine Comedy Festival is dedicated to:

  1. Stimulating a lifelong understanding and appreciation of the arts.
  2. Increasing an interest in live art and comedy by featuring established entertainers and industry professionals, attracting larger audiences, encouraging up-and-coming young comedians, and providing one-of-a-kind networking opportunities.
  3. Offering educational seminars, workshops and performance opportunities to the public, novice entertainers and students. Big Pine is also dedicated to providing internships to help Arizona students can gain valuable experience in creating, developing, and promoting artistic productions.

The involvement of generous, civic-minded businesses and individuals is vital to the success of this endeavor. Community participation and financial support enables Big Pine to reach wider audiences, equip new artists with tools and performance experience, and introduce the public to the beauty performance and live art. We invite you to get involved and make a considerable difference in the arts community. Big Pine offers opportunities in corporate sponsorships, business promotion and marketing opportunities, tax deductible donations, and volunteering. For any questions regarding Big Pine community involvement please contact us here.

In 2017, Big Pine Comedy festival began providing intern opportunities to Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University students. Through the hard work of the Big Pine family, production team, volunteers, and interns Big Pine plans to come back bigger and better than ever each year.

​We look forward to laughing with you!
