The 37th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition starts November 2, 2016 and continues nightly until a winner is crowned on Sunday, November 27 at the Seattle Center Cornish Playhouse.
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 Final round begins on Tuesday November 22. After visits to theaters in Vashon, Kirkland, Bremerton and Seattle, we will have a new champion.
Thor: Ragnarok starts November 24th
Imprisoned, the almighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
