Competition Information

We all make mistakes.  Even us.  So, if you were not selected this year you have a second chance to be in the Competition.  We will be selecting Wild Cards for the competition during two Open Mics.

Judges Scoring
In each stage of the Stand-up Competition comedians are scored, by three independent judges, from 1-10 in three categories: Audience Reaction, Originality, and Stage Presence.  The category scores from each judge are added together and averaged with the other two judges.  In the event of a tie the comedian with the highest average Audience Reaction scores will win- followed by Originality and Stage Presence.
