Submissions are now open for You’re Being Ridiculous!

You’re Being Ridiculous is a humorous live lit show curated by Jeremy Owens. Three cycles of shows take place quarterly with various performers. Past performers include Dana NorrisParker StockmanAllison ShoemakerAndrew MarikisMegan Stielstra and more.

What kind of submissions is Jeremy Owens looking for? Read below:

We’re a humorous live-lit show, but that doesn’t mean that we’re necessarily looking for a stand-up routine. Funny is great, but there should be something at stake. What we really want are stories that are brave and revealing with a hint of embarrassment. Funny is good, but funny with a heart is even better… If our show has a motto it would be, “good stories are better than good times.”
