The L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition is dedicated to introducing the newest and hottest comedic talent to audiences and the industry, helping them make the connections they need to take their careers to the next level.

The L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival, currently the largest comedy film festival in the U.S., is a four-day, non-stop celebration of comedic short films with screenings, industry panels and a red-carpet awards event. LACS was recently named one of Moviemaker Magazine's  “25 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” .

Co-founded by  Boston Legal's  Gary Anthony Williams, L.A. Comedy Shorts attracts heavyweights from the world of comedy, including Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow's '', a major sponsor in 2009. Adam Carolla hosted the star-studded red carpet awards, where actor/director Bobcat Goldthwait was honored with the first annual ‘Commie' comedy achievement award and Mark Hamill presented for best comedy screenplay.

Over the course of the festival, attendees were treated to hilarious shorts and informative discussion panels that included  SNL  alum Laraine Newman,  Malcolm in the Middle  creator Linwood Boomer,  Lord of the Rings ' Sean Astin,  Boondocks ' creator Aaron McGruder, and many more.


Winners receive cash prizes and valuable industry meetings, and all filmmakers enjoy great exposure from the heavy industry presence at the festival.  In 2009, winning scripts and films were requested or reviewed by top production companies and agencies, including:
