That's when the 30th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition will play out in venues across the state of Washington as over 30 comics will be whittled down to one champion over the course of that month.
It is an incomparable experience that can test the mettle of even the most experienced performers...but it is also a crucible by which your comedic abilities can be finely honed and shined into brilliance.
Mitch Hedberg was one such champion. So was David Crowe, Matt Weinhold, Lamont Ferguson, Damonde Tschritter, Tom Cotter, Darryl Lennox, Dwight Slade, Kermet Apio, Ross Shafer, Gabriel Rutledge, Drake Witham, Tommy Savitt and many others.
The list of people who have competed but NOT won is filled with names like: Ty Barnett, Patton Oswalt, Aisha Tyler, Brian Posehn...
The competition is accepting entries and if anyone would like information on how to submit yourself for consideration for this competition, let me know (You can pm me.) and I'll get you the info right away.
I can't guarantee you'll be one of the comedians chosen to compete this year, but you'll never know if you could if you don't try.
And when the competition begins, I'll keep everyone on the Seattle subforum on AST well informed.
The thread's been created for information, discussion and for others to follow along.
pg--30 is a nice round number...very memorable...and so, it would be a good year to win this thing...--seattle
