The Long Beach Playhouse Invites You To Sharpen Your Jokes For A Comedy Battle Royale
2012-02-28 · By Editor
Do you amuse total strangers with your hilarious one-liners? Do your friends tell you you’re missing your comedic calling? Do you long to join The Second City for the chance to entertain audiences with your quick wit and improvisational skills? Have we got a deal for you!
The Long Beach Playhouse is seeking the funniest people in town for its Comedy Battle Royale Event on April 13 and 14, 2012. To apply, send us a video submission showcasing your act whether as a single stand-up comedian or an improv ensemble.
Submissions should be less than 2 minutes in length. And for now, keep it PG 13 – save the R-rated stuff for the stage! We will be accepting submissions through March 15, 2012. Submit your video to our Facebook page. If you or your improv troupe is selected to participate in our Comedy Battle Royale, you will be contacted by April 2nd.
The semi-finalists will engage in “comedy combat” in a face-off on Friday April 13th in front of a live audience. The audience – aka the comedy jury – will vote for their favorites, who will then move on to the finals on Saturday April 14th!
There will be winners in both the stand-up and the improv categories. Stand up winners will receive $100 and the improv champions, $200. In addition to the cash prize, winners will be offered future bookings at the Long Beach Playhouse.
So grab your camera and show us your comedy chops in a two-minute video. This could be the start of your new career.
