I am setting up a stand-up comedy competition and you are welcome to sign up. Spots are already filling up quickly, but here are some of the details:
At least $300 to the winner. I'm still working on sponsorships, so that total could increase.
The August and September Shows are qualifiers and each will have 8 comedians. The top two from each night will move on to the October 23rd show. For August and September, each comedian will have 5-7 minutes to perform with point deductions for going over or under time. You may have a stopwatch or something sitting on the table provided in the performing area. You will be graded by the judges and I will tally the final numbers.
For the four that advance to the October show, you will each have 15-20 minutes to perform. The winner will get the prize money and maybe even a trophy. On top of the prize money, the winner will also be invited to headline a show if they choose to do so. The headlining show will be a paying gig.
If you are interested in joining this contest or have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or look up Lee Hale on Facebook. The openings are filling up quickly.
