Part conference, part competition, all comedy … the Cactus Comedy Classic brings a 3 days of live art & entertainment to Stir Crazy Comedy Club and partnering Westgate venues in Glendale, AZ.

The CCC is held the last weekend of April annually.

Each year 25 comedians are invited to participate in the CCC. Performers include standup and musical comedy.

The winner of the CCC will be chosen by our panel of visiting Industry. 1st place will receive a $1K cash prize at the end of the weekend. Performers are scored on originality/material, stage presence, “x factor”, and audience reactions.

Visiting industry changes each year, but we typically invite a variety of comedy club owners and bookers to attend/judge each performance.

Yes. The 2021 schedule will include Industry Meet N’ Greets, Performer events, free meal opportunities, accommodation discounts, live podcasts, and more. A full schedule will be available for performers & guests as we get closer to the event.
