For three days in May, 2017, Downtown Las Vegas became the global epicenter of comedy. Twenty-six of the most celebrated standup comedians in America today performed on seven stages throughout the East Fremont Entertainment District.
As a result, the Crapshoot Comedy Festival became one of the most beloved comedy festivals among comedians and industry professionals from Los Angeles to New York.
The 2017 Crapshoot Comedy Festival demonstrated the feasibility and enormous potential of a destination comedy festival in Las Vegas. The event welcomed 4,600 comedy fans representing an approximate local/visitor ratio of 67/33, respectively, with the majority falling in the 24-36 y/o demographic. A staggering first-year aggregate social media reach of over 2.1 million was achieved through comedian, attendee, partner and resulting press mentions.
