The September 1st deadline for comedians to apply to be considered for the upcoming 33rd Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition has come and gone. The application period is now over. We will begin sifting through and reviewing the hundreds of candidates hoping to be chosen for this year’s roster.
We also have a series of Regional Talent Showcases coming up to help us evaluate area talent for this year’s competition.
Tuesday September 11th and Wednesday September 12th, Director of Talent Peter Greyy will be at Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Oregon. Each night will have 20 performers doing 5 minutes each–so, 40 Oregon-based performers in all. Showtime is at 8pm.
Sunday September 16th, Wednesday September 19th and Sunday September 23rd, Regional Talent Showcases will be held at the Comedy Underground, Seattle. Each of these nights will feature 18 (possibly more) performers–different each night–and special guest hosts. Showtime is at 8:30pm.
Thursday September 27th, one final Regional Talent Showcase will be held at the Comedy Underground, Tacoma. 15 or more performers will showcase on this night. Showtime is at 8:30pm.
These shows are fast-paced and exciting nights, highlighting some of the freshest upcoming talent in the area today doing their best and hoping to impress enough to be selected for this year’s competition (which takes place in November.)
