Here's what some of our visiting industry have to say about the festival.

"Everyone who is selected for and performs at the festival is officially passed to work at the Comedy Attic." - Jared Thompson, The Comedy Attic.

"Limestone is a festival I look forward to attending every year. The talent is always great and it’s evident that the organizers put a lot of time and energy into taking care of the comics, industry and everyone who attends a show and supports the festival. The venues, the town, and all the events outside of the actual shows make this one of my all-around favorite fests." - Jamison Yoder, Funny Business.

"You know when you go to The Limestone Comedy Festival that its going to be loaded with nothing but hilarious comedians that have an original voice. The selection committee obviously has a high threshold for originality and it shows. That's why I think its one of the best events in the country for coming to see new and upcoming talent." - Todd McComas, Morty's/Wiley's/Laughing Derby

"I was thrilled to be a part of Limestone Fest last year. Jared and Mat have a built a great vibe in Bloomington with this Festival and The Comedy Attic. The lineups, venues and audiences were all so much fun and a great reflection of what we all love about comedy." - Becky Astphan, Sweet Wine Productions

"It's not only a fun weekend for our team, but an opportunity to scout out new talent as the line up is diverse and brings comedians in from around the country. As a production and booking company, we value a well crafted and organized festival where venues are in close proximity, which allows us to see the majority of performances. Submission clips to our company are certainly encouraged and reviewed, however seeing a comedian in action really gives us a better idea on whether they would be ideal for a produced or booked show we manage." - Natalie Heflin, NAT Productions - Bookings & Promotions
