I've been out of touch lately. Mainly because I've been working on the Seattle International Comedy Competition. This is the 29th year!
32 comics compete for about $15K in cash prizes and a recording contract. It's pretty exciting. Right now we are in the middle of the second preliminary week. The top five at the end of this week will join the top five from last week in the semi-finals. The comics travel all over Washington (and now Spokane) and perform in a variety of different venues.
You should check out some of the shows if you're in Washington:
Tonight, Friday, 11/14: Intiman Theatre, Seattle
Saturday, 11/15: Columbia Theatre, Longview
Sunday, 11/16: The Fairhaven Pub and Martini Bar, Bellingham (last night of the second preliminary week)
Tuesday, 11/18: Edmonds Center for the Arts, Edmonds (first night of the semi finals)
Wednesday, 11/19: Liberty Theatre, Puyallup
Thursday, 11/20: Laughs Comedy Spot, Kirkland
Saturday, 11/22: Lucky Eagle Casino, Rochester
Check out one of the shows -- you'll have a great time.
