The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival celebrates all that is the nerd comedy scene: stand-up, sketch, improv, burlesque, storytelling, musical acts, podcasts, panels, and so much more! And this year, we’re once again bringing it to you safely in your own home. Join us for one glorious weekend where everyone is welcome, and everyone is a nerd! 

And, it’s FREE! We are not charging admission or selling tickets for this event. 

CNCF 2021 will be streaming at the evenings of May 13th-15th, 2021. Each audience member can go and create their own profile on Sched, where they can set their own privacy settings, and also select each show they’re interested in viewing. Once selected, their spot has been reserved for that show, and a reminder email will be sent. Ten minutes before each show, a Zoom waiting room will be available for all audience members to congregate before the live streaming of that show begins. 

CNCF 2021 features nerd comedy acts from all over the country, including New York, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., and our home of Chicago. Our headlining act features a live game show, hosted by Chicago comedians Patti Vasquez and Elliott Serrano.

The official sponsors of CNCF 2021 are: 

Empirical Brewery: craft brewery located in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. 

I Play Games:  interactive gaming organization that hosts events all over.

Toy de Jour:  vintage toy store in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.
