Does anyone know of any comedy screenplay contests? I know of Screencraft's and Stage32's.

Hey Becca, I believe the PAGE Awards has a comedy feature category. They're one of the big boys so worth entering. :)
I think Austin still uses categories.
Page, Austin & Final dratft big break all have categories
So does the LA Comedy Festival, Screenplay Festival, the International Screenwriters Association, and Scriptapalooza.
Filmmatic's Contest (I'm a part of it) has a separate comedy category (www.screenplayawards.org)
Think Nashville Film fests screenplay comp has a Comedy category in both Features and Shorts... Though I think it's now closed for 2016.
