The 2023 Seattle International Comedy Competition start the first week of November, 2023 and ends the last week of November.
There are two “Preliminary” rounds of 16 comedians; each comedian gets 5 minutes to impress. The Preliminary rounds consist of 5 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.
At the last Semi-Final show the Finalists are announced. Five comedians get to go big, and five get to go home. After two days to recover and plan, the best of the pack compete at the FINALS on November 26 at LAUGHS COMEDY CLUB.
