Do you like cracking jokes at parties? Think you could quit your day job and be a comedian? Then try your hand at comedy with Acme Comedy Club’s “Funniest Person in the Twin Cities 2012” contest. You can win $1000 plus bragging rights.
Here are the details.
The challenge: Be as funny as you can be in 3 minutes. The rules: The rules are simple. The contest is for amateurs only, if you have ever been paid for your comedic talent you are not eligible to participate. Material must be original, but does not have to be traditional stand up comedy, it just has to be funny and your own. Contestants are judged on stage presence, creativity and audience response.
The perks: 20 free tickets to the show you will be performing in. Give them to whomever you fancy, and have your own cheering section. The shows are always great here, so they may owe you one for the free ticket. There are nightly prizes and five contestants compete a night along with our regular show featuring a new national headliner every week.
The top 25 scores of the summer move on to the semi-finals August 28th – Sept 1st, and then we narrow it down to the top 5 scores who go head to head to battle it out and see who will win $1,000 and be crowned “Funniest Person in the Twin Cities 2011” on September 4th.
If you are looking for something UN-conventional to do this summer, this is the place. For those of you who like to watch, every evening is a brand new line up of up and comers just waiting to be discovered. We are kicking off SOON.
