Sacramento Stand-Up Competition at Comedy Spot
Thursday, July 25 through Saturday, July 27, various times, Comedy Spot, $15-$45
Comedians are still doing stand-up comedy and they’re still vying for recognition—guess that means it’s time for another installment of the Sacramento Stand-Up Competition. This weekend, Sacramento Comedy Spot plays host to two dozen laugh-ranchers, comedy-farmers and giggle-diggers. There’s some $1,750 in prize money up for grabs, the largest chunk going to the first-place winner. Funny-ness is rewarded, and the comics have come from all over the United States for a chance to grab the belt and the purse. Four judges will evaluate preliminary sets on Friday, leading into the five-person finals on Saturday. Show up for one round or all the rounds, and see if you can gauge who will win based on stage presence, originality and audience reaction. 1050 20th Street, Suite 130, saccomedyspot.com/competition.
