About the Competition
The 34th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition starts November 6, 2013 at The Columbia City Theatre in Seattle and continues nightly until a winner is crowned on Sunday, December 1 at The Comedy Underground in Seattle.
Seattle International Comedy Competition attracts hundreds of comedians from around The US and Canada. It is a premiere event for emerging comedy talent.
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.
