WHAT IS COMEDY HACK DAY?

CHD is a live event series that invites comedians, developers, and designers to come together, drink free booze, and build hilarious tech. The very best creations are showcased before a panel of celebrity judges at a one-of-a-kind live comedy show. One team wins, but nobody loses. Except Dave. Stupid Dave.

HOW the event WORKS

1. Ideas & Drinks

Every CHD begins with ideas. And booze. Participants pitch a whole bunch of stuff like this, teams form around the best ones, and everybody sets to work on building their apps. Then there's also more booze. 

2. Build & prepare

At least 24 hours is dedicated to building products, refining demos, and working up a solid musk inside a workspace. The whole objective is to quickly prototype a functioning piece of tech, and hash out a hilarious demo that showcases what it does.

3. The Comedy Show

CHD is not just a hackathon. Cuz no hackathon ends like this. Tickets are sold, an audience assembles, and the best teams take to the stage to demo before celebrity judges. A winner is crowned. More booze is consumed. Everybody feels happy.
