venue information

ENTERTAIN.

Green Gravel is dedicated to curating premium comedy events in Iowa with an alt comedy fest at its core. Offering affordable, accessible shows and workshops in progressive comedy, GG aspires to celebrate Iowa comedy while bringing the world’s funniest ladies and gentlemen to the heartland. As a collective, we value the opportunity to inspire our audience. Our state is a lush and fertile environment in terms of comedic creativity, and our goal is to generate a festival that matches that unique aesthetic; our programming method is to innovate, never imitate. All this care over a bunch of jokes. Pretty bonkers, we know.

EDUCATE.

We’re proud to be the premiere comedy fest in the region incorporating Q&As and workshops into our schedule to help shape Iowa’s great comedic minds to come. That’s meant offering sketch classes taught by Kevin McDonald from the legendary Kids in the Hall. It’s meant snappy improv courses via Hell Yes Fest founder Chris Trew. It’s meant an open, free panel discussion with the creators of Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Too Many Cooks.

ENHANCE.

Green Gravel is committed to tangible outreach within the comedy world; with a staff entrenched in the comedy scenes in both Los Angeles and Iowa City, we hope to bridge the quality of these communities by spotlighting talent from Iowa in LA as much as comedians from LA in Iowa. We’ve hosted events at the Improv Hollywood that have featured some of Iowa’s best and brightest with further opportunities slated for the coming year.
