Portland comic Auggie Smith takes Seattle competition — and San Francisco, too

For the first time ever in history, a comedian has won both the Seattle and San Francisco Comedy Competitions in the same year.
Final Night - Moore Theatre
Going into the final night of the final week of the 31st Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition, what some had thought was a solid lock was suddenly up for grabs. The minute that people had found out that Auggie Smith was doing the Seattle International Comedy Competition, people felt that a strong touring headliner hailing from this region of the country would be the prohibitive favorite. When Auggie went ahead and won this year's San Francisco Comedy Competition, that belief was solidified. When Auggie went ahead and took top honors for the first two nights of the Finals Week, it seemed to confirm what a lot of people had believed--that this was Auggie's year to do the unimaginable...to win both the San Francisco Comedy Competition and the Seattle International Comedy Competition in the same year.
No one had EVER done that.
Something happened on the way to Auggie Smith claiming the championship of the Seattle International Comedy Competition (to go with the San Francisco Comedy Competition championship he earned earlier this year) on the second to last night of the event.
The something that happened? Bremerton.
