BurlyCon Peer Reviews

Peer Reviews

Applications are now closed. You may tickets to watch and provide feedback to the performers for the April 23 Peer Reviews (6:00-8:00pm Pacific Time) here:

Peer Reviews are a hallmark experience of BurlyCon...

They are a priceless opportunity for thoughtful feedback in a supportive and inspiring format.

Participants of Peer Reviews will be given 10 minutes to perform, recover, and receive feedback. We encourage participants to limit their act length to 4 minutes, to provide ample time for feedback. You will not be disqualified for having a longer act, but you will not receive extra time for feedback if you do.

You will receive written and verbal feedback from a panel of experienced performers, and other professionals. You will also receive feedback forms from the audience, and may also receive verbal feedback from a select number ofaudience members (your peers!).

The Peer Reviews will be held VIRTUALLY via Zoom Friday, April 23 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm PST. You will be able to either submit a pre-recorded video (stage performance, rehearsal, or home video) or perform live via Zoom. If it's possible, we recommend submitting a video, so that the panelists will have an opportunity to review your act ahead of time to give more thorough feedback.

There is now a $25 fee to apply to participate in Peer Reviews, this fee ensures fair payment to the panel of expert reviewers. If you are not selected, you will have a $25 credit to apply towards classes at BurlyCon for 1 year.

Peer Review applications will be open from February 15 to midnight on March 15. Eight Peer Review participants will be selected by a BurlyCon panel to ensure that there are performers from a range of backgrounds, levels of experience, and acts from brand new concepts to signature acts.
