Join us for the semi-finals in America’s biggest touring comedy festival – one night only at BPA! The 36th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition starts November 4, 2015 at The Columbia City Theatre in Seattle and continues nightly at venues throughout the region until a winner is crowned!

Catch them now before they’re too expensive – 32 professional comedians from all over North America – from LA, San Francisco, Boston, Minneapolis, and of course from Seattle, Portland (Oregon and Maine both!), and Vancouver BC. Follow the action: www.seattlecomedycompetition.org or www.facebook.com/seattlecomedycompetition.

The Seattle International Comedy Competition is the REAL “Last Comic Standing.” From over 500 submissions, this year’s competition features 32 of the funniest up-and-coming comedians you will ever see.

Sixteen of them perform November 4 – 9, followed by another group of Sixteen November 10 – 15. All will be competing in the 36th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition, vying for over $15,000 in cash prizes and their big Hollywood break. The top five from each week will move on to the semi-finals November 18 – 22 (including the BPA performance on November 22!). The top 10 comedians selected from the two opening rounds will perform 10 minutes each for Bainbridge audiences. The top five from there will make the finals November 24 – 29, with the winner announced at the “Final-Final” show on Sunday November 29 at the beautiful Snoqualmie Casino Ballroom.
