About 2019

A message from Executive Producer Dwayne Duke

            The 2018 Festival was a raging success and we’ve decided to do it again. The Midwest Queer Comedy Festival (MQCF) will return in 2019! Next time we’re moving the party to LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY! 


        Why Louisville? The festival has always been designed to rotate through different cities, to expose as many people to different comedic voices. According to the Midwestern Traveler
Louisville, Ky., is a Midwest-Southern hybrid. It’s the 16th largest city in the United States and the considered the 5th largest in the Midwest. Derby City has a rich diversity, and a warm and inviting community, and is ranked in the top 20 cities with a gay population. St. Louis, Mo, Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN, and Indianapolis, IN are all within 300 miles of the city. 


       Dates and details for submissions, featured performers and other important information wil be coming very soon. Can’t wait to see you all in Derby City next year!
