Welcome to the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival 2021, where everyone is welcome, and everyone is a nerd!

CNCF celebrates all that is the nerd comedy scene: stand-up, sketch, improv, burlesque, podcasts, and so much more! Once again, we’re coming to you virtually and safely in your own home. Join us for one glorious weekend, May 13th - 15th, and see nerdy comedy acts from all over the country.

Please sign up for your Sched profile, and build your own schedule of shows you want to see. Once you register, the streaming links of your selected shows will be emailed to you the day of those shows. No tickets or admission fees are required.

Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or puns at chicagonerdfest@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!

Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival
I've been involved with the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival for at least seven years, the last fouras a producer.  When not working on that, and when not waylaid by a global pandemic, I'm a sound engineer with a day job. I work mostly at as a bank compliance person during the day.  If I have any time left over, I'm a dog mom that loves to read, a member of Belles and Chimes pinball league, and a terrible video game player.
