The 33nd Annual Seattle International Stand-Up Comedy Competition will once again take over the Auburn Avenue Theater for two nights of the preliminary rounds, Nov. 2 and 9 at 7:30 PM.

The Seattle International Comedy Competition is an annual, multi-week, judged, stand-up comedy contest. Over thirty comedians, out of hundreds who apply, perform in shows held in comedy clubs, bars, restaurants, casinos and theaters in and around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest throughout the month of November.

Contestants perform 3-7 minute long sets in one of two preliminary weeks, consisting of six shows in six venues over six nights. The top five from each preliminary week will meet in the semi-finals week, which requires them to perform 8-12 minute long sets for another six shows. The top five from the semi-finals move on to the finals. In the finals, they will perform 15-20 minute long sets in five more shows…and, a winner is crowned.

Past winners have included Sean Kent, Tommy Savitt, Marcus, Damonde Tschritter, and Auggie Smith, several of whom have gone on to perform as headliners with The Ave’s Monthly Comedy Series.

And remember to get tickets for both nights. Why bother? Half of the competing comedians perform one night, half the other. See both shows and guarantee you get a taste of them all!

The City of Auburn BRAVO Performing Arts Series includes music, dance, comedy, film and theater performances for all ages throughout the year. We invite you to share all these magnificent moments on stage where extraordinary things come to life, making Auburns BRAVO Season More Than You Imagined!
