The Green Gravel Comedy Festival is a two-day alternative comedy festival in multiple venues in the town of Iowa City, Iowa. Offering affordable, accessible shows and workshops in alternative comedy, Green Gravel aims to bring the finest comedic voices to the heart of Iowa. Our fest is made possible by the community of Iowa City in conjunction with sponsors, partnerships and volunteer contributions.
We’re thrilled to be offering affordable options for ticketing: you can pop in for a single show, buy a day pass or snap up the Dynamite weekend pass. Our venues include The Riverside Theatre, Gabe's, The Deadwood Tavern, High Ground Cafe, FilmScene and George's Buffet - we're proud that each of these venues sells a selection of wine and beers (or more) for our patrons to enjoy.
One of the fundamental goals of Green Gravel is to break the mold of what a comedy fest can be; we're curating an experience that is meant to enchant, mystify and engage. Please peruse our lineup of experimental/breakout forms of comedy, from stand-up performed in remote locations ("7 Minutes in Purgatory") to laser-assisted storytelling (Laser Improv) to singing cowboys ("Stampede!"). We also encourage creators of all ages to attend our complimentary Q&A with the lead creators from Adult Swim on the afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 28th at the fest.
Let's beat the cold, let's blow our minds and let's get weird in 2015!
