The College at Oneonta is a member of the State University of New York (SUNY) system and is located between Binghamton and Albany in central New York. The college is highly selective, has a female/male ratio of 55/45, and a high number of education and music industry majors. SUNY Oneonta is currently accepting submissions from comedians for performances during the 2008/2009 school year.

CUAC Laugh In are comedy performances that take place every other Monday when classes are in session. There are 13 shows total for the 2008/2009 school year. In general, comedians perform on campus in The Waterfront- a 150 person capacity venue with a small stage. A PA system is provided. Regional and National comedians are encouraged to submit.

Selected comedians will be compensated with a flat amount of $1,000-$2,000 plus hotel and meal before show. When submitting your EPK, please realize that air travel to SUNY Oneonta is not easy, as the closest airport is 75 miles away. Artists will need to rent a vehicle if they are not local and fly into area, and should keep this in mind when submitting their performance fee.
