Rooster T. Feathers is proud to host an Annual New Talent Comedy Competition. It starts with a total pool of 136 amateur comedians. The audience votes for their favorites at each show, advancing them to the semifinals and finals, and ultimately picks the funniest local comedian. The top finalists compete for cash prizes and a week of paid emcee work at Roosters. All competition shows feature a professional emcee and headliner.
The comedy competition shows are held most Wednesdays beginning in mid- to late-February, and culminating in early May. Sign-ups start December 1st for the following February/March/April/May season. This competition is restricted to the first 136 sign-ups, and participants must be from the San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area (3-hour radius of Sunnyvale please) to qualify. For more information and to sign-up, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All comedy competition shows start at 8:00pm with the doors opening at 7:15pm. Ticket prices are $10 for the preliminary rounds, $12 for the semifinal rounds, and $15 for the finals (which is also a Special Event so no passes or coupons please).
