North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival


Every February #NCCAF presents one of the largest independent comedy events in the country, showcasing improv, sketch and stand-up comedy acts from all across North America in the heart of North Carolina (Chapel Hill and Carrboro). Produced by DSI Comedy and Zach Ward; NCCAF was created in 2001 to showcase Chicago-style improvisation and educate Carolina audiences. This is an experience you will not want to miss, as this show has something for everyone.

Headliners for the Show

Emo Philips will headline his own standup show at DSI COMEDY on Wednesday Feb 15 to kick off the 17th annual festival. He will be improvising with founder Zach Ward on Thursday, a special All-star cast on Friday and (as he has for the last 5 years) Emo will be dropping in on as many workshops as possible while in Chapel Hill. Emo Philips is one of the recent standards of American comedy, an incredible entertainer born in the suburbs of Chicago. His work influenced Jim Carrey, Demetri Martin, Patton Oswalt, Mitch Hedberg and Bo Burnham.

The Josh and Tamra Show returns to headline #NCCAF 2017. The first comedy duo to tour Muppet-style Puppet Improvisation. They are offering a Master Class in improv and puppetry, on camera. The Josh & Tamra Show are pioneers of puppet improv comedy. For the past 17 years, Josh Cohen, Tamra Malaga, and a cast of amazing Muppet style puppets create a feature length montage of scenes. This show may contain adult situations and language.

Mo Collins (MADtv 1998-2004) has confirmed as a headliner for #NCCAF 2017. Mo will also teach a Master Class in creating sketch comedy characters and will improvise with our festival All-Stars. Mo has been a part of MadTv for some time now and should bring the area top notch comedy skits.
