We’re baa-aaaack! Duofest will return in 2016. Following the success of our earlier in the week Wednesday start, our dates for next year’s festival will be Wednesday, June 1st through Saturday, June 4th, 2016. Look for a new website early in the new year and the opening of our submission period in early February!
To everyone who came out and supported Duofest in any capacity this year – thank you! Our performers, workshops and audiences are what make this such a special festival. We’ll be back in 2016!
Düofest is the only festival of its kind… a 4-day celebration of comedy duos. 30 teams from around the world will converge on Philly from June 3rd through June 6th to perform, teach, and play.

You can also follow the festival on Twitter and friend us on Facebook. Festival passes will be $22 and good for entry to ALL SHOWS!
