The 36th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition is underway! This is the first show of the second week of Preliminaries.
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. The rest go home.
On November 9, 2015, the first round of preliminaries ends at Comedy Underground with 15 new comics. See both shows and catch all the talent back-to-back!
On November 22, 2015, The Seattle International Comedy Competition returns for the final show of the Semi-Finals. See the top 10 comics perform longer sets. This show is always one of the most exciting show of the event, since everyone is good enough to make it to the finals, but only five of the comics can advance.
