Just in time for Valentine's Day, join us for a fun, live event where comedians and locals pitch their favorite single friend to the crowd!
Pitches are brief, entertaining powerpoint presentations in the style of a startup pitch deck. Each pitch will be followed by an audience Q&A.
Event will start at 6:00 pm, pitching starts at 6:30 pm.
Q. What's the event format?
A. Each person will have ~3 minutes to pitch their single friend, who will join them on stage. After the pitch, the single friend has ~2 minutes to participate in an audience Q&A. If a pitch catches your eye, ask a question!
Q: How do I pitch my friend?
A: Apply to pitch your friend at bitly.com/datemyfriend by January 11. You will be notified shortly after if your pitch is accepted.
Q: I applied to pitch. Does this mean I’m pitching?
A: Not quite— due to time restraints, we can only select a limited number of pitches for this event. We will be in touch shortly after the submission deadline if you are accepted to pitch.
Q. Can I just walk up and pitch the day of?
A. No walk-on pitches will be allowed. Please use the form to apply to pitch.
Q: Can I pitch myself?
A: Sorry, pitch a friend or have a friend pitch you!
Q. Who will be chosen to pitch?
A. We'll have a diverse lineup of Boston/Cambridge comedians and locals.
Q: Is this event LGBTQ+ friendly?
A: Yes! We welcome and encourage pitches about people of any sexual orientation, and ensure that the final lineup will not solely consist of heterosexual pitches.
Q: Is this only for people looking for monogamous relationships?
A: This event is open to anyone who self-identifies as looking for a partner or a date, not just those who are looking for a monogamous relationship.
