furry variety show

Are you a fursuiter with a sketch or a song you'd like to perform to? Have you written a comedy sketch and want to see it come to life on stage? Are you musically inclined, do Flow Arts (Silks, Lyra, Poi, Acrobatics), or do you just have a special talent you want to show off? Then we want YOU to join the Furry Variety Show at Midwest Furfest!

The Furry Variety Show is a stage show consisting of independent acts performed by furry fans just like you! The fandom has an amazing breadth of talent and we want to showcase these talents as Vaudeville acts that are short and entertaining.


We welcome contact from potential performers as early as six months before the show - we like performers who plan their acts in advance! The variety show offers an internal mailing list in which performers can brainstorm, coordinate, and support each other as they prepare their acts in the months leading up to the show.

If you would like to be a part of the show, please contact us at fvs@furfest.org and we can talk about how you can contribute! Please contact us well before the con so we can plan together how best to present your content and how we can help.

There are three simple guidelines for variety show performances:

  • Acts should be somehow "furry" in nature - ideally performed by fursuits and/or puppets. Video presentations are also welcome.

  • Acts have a time limit of roughly 3 minutes (negotiable )

  • Acts should try to stick to a PG-13 rating (also negotiable)

Following the acts, attendees are invited to participate in the selection of an Audience Choice prize for most popular performance.
