October 6th and 7th 2017 in select venues of downtown Greeley, Colorado 

Kid's Stand-up Comedy Contest!

Admission to Comedy Con for all contestants is free!

Do you know a little tyke who could be the next Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan, or Tina Fey? We need their sense of humor! Auditions will be held on the Comedy Con Facebook page. All a contestant has to do is simply send a video of his or her routine to us in a message and we'll post it. 

1st place winner opens for Steve Hytner on Saturday night October, 7th!
This is an outstanding reference to put on a young comedian's resume!

Also, 1st place wins $100, 2nd place wins $50, and 3rd place wins $25. 
Additional prizes and sponsorship are in the works.

  • Auditions begin April 1st, 2017 by posting the child's video to the Comedy Con Facebook page @comedycon. There are 50 slots available for contestants. Three judges will choose 20 to go on and perform at Comedy Con before an audience where the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be selected by evaluating their live standup.

  • Each routine is to be 3 minutes long. The live performance for those twenty who are selected to move on will be 3 minutes as well. Ensure that the contestant's routine is 3 minutes and no more. Part of the evaluation is if the contestants stay within their time allotted.

Comedy Con is a family event. Although with comedy type cosplay, attire and accessories shouldn't be an issue, we reserve the right to enforce appropriate wardrobe.


Regardless of your gender identification, we require all attendees, exhibitors and guests to wear sports bra-like coverage on top with leotard-type coverage on bottom. No butt cheeks, no thongs and no “plumber’s butt.”
No bare chests, no singlets, and no Vampirella-type costumes.

A costume must provide business appropriate coverage at all times, including standing, sitting, moving or posing. Coverage material must be thick and sturdily constructed with the proper undergarments. (Types of coverage that are prohibited include, but are not limited to, sheer materials, very thin materials, tape, pasties, body paint, liquid latex and prosthetics). Proper coverage must be held to the body by more than adhesives. (Examples of adhesives include but are not limited to tape, prosthetic glue, medical glue, theater glue, fashion glue and fashion tape). They may be used to assist in wearing the costume but cannot be the only method for keeping a costume on. No illusion of nudity. If flesh colored garments are not easily identifiable from 10 feet away as garments, they are prohibited. Please wear protective footwear at all times. This means some sort of hard sole (Flip flops, shoes). A unitard or stocking feet are prohibited

Rollerblades, roller-skates, wheelies and other shoes with wheels in them are prohibited. Makeup must be properly sealed so that it does not rub off with casual contact or make a mess. NO GLITTER.  Please be mindful that body paint and/or fake blood are great fun for you but the other attendees at the convention might not want it on themselves.

Military dress: If you intend to wear a uniform that appears realistic, distinguish that it is a costume. If your costume could be mistaken for current military or law enforcement, it is prohibited. Hateful symbols are prohibited. Emblems of genocide are prohibited.
