This event is 18 and over

Watch the fun as comedians compete for a cash prize! We're challenging improv teams, sketch troupes, stand-ups, storytellers, songwriters and punsters to come up with five minutes of funny on the topic of our choosing. They can do whatever they want with their five minutes, as long as they incorporate this theme:

Animals. All creatures, great and small. Whoever makes the audience laugh like hyenas walks away with the prize!

Want to compete? E-mail Your team can be anywhere from one person (if you're a stand-up, for example) to eight people (if you're a sketch or improv group). We're accepting up to 12 teams, and we're hoping for a variety of styles. E-mailing doesn't guarantee you a spot in the contest, but we will let you know by September 4 if you're in the lineup. The prize is $250.
