37th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition

One Night Only at BPA: November 19, 2016
Saturday @ 7:30 p.m.

The Seattle International Comedy Competition is the REAL “Last Comic Standing.”

MEET THE SEMI-FINALISTS: Billy Anderson from Seattle, Drew Behm from Edmonton, Pat Burtscher from Toronto, Ricarlo Flanagan from Los Angeles, Mayce Galoni from Hamilton, Scoot Herring from Portland, Preacher Lawson from Orlando, Scott Losse from Seattle, Eric Lundquist from Seattle, and Linda Stogner from Dallas.

Join us for the semi-finals in America’s biggest touring comedy festival – one night only at BPA! The 37th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition starts November 2, 2016 and continues nightly at venues throughout the region until a winner is crowned on Sunday, November 27 at the Snoqualmie Casino in North Bend!

It’s America’s biggest touring comedy festival:  26 Days - 22 Shows - 18 Venues - 33 comedians - over $15,000 in cash prizes – and talent executives from CBS, NBC, and more: movie studios, managers, agents and producers.

There are two “preliminary” rounds of 16-17 comedians; each comedian gets 5 minutes to impress. The Preliminary rounds consist of 6 shows, and a combination of entertainment industry and celebrity judges and audience reaction determines who moves on when each performer’s 5 best scores are tallied.

The top 5 comics from the Preliminaries make the semi-finals; all the semi-finalists win some cash, and get to compete for the title by performing for 10 minutes nightly for 5 shows.

At the last Semi-Final show the finalists are announced. Five comedians get to go big, and five get to go home. After two days to recover and plan, the Final round begins on Tuesday November 22. After visits to theaters in Vashon, Kirkland, Bremerton and North Bend, we will have a new champion.
