The University Union’s UNIQUE Programs will be hosting the 43rd Annual San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition with special guest host, Tommy Lama. The competition will be held in The University Union’s Ballroom, in support of Sacramento State’s Hornet WOW.
The San Francisco Comedy Competition is an annual, multi-week, judged, stand-up comedy contest. Over thirty comedians, out of hundreds who apply, perform in shows held in comedy clubs, bars, restaurants, and theaters around the Bay Area. These comedians are in hopes of becoming the newly crowned SF Comedy Competition winner. Contestants perform three-to-seven minute long sets in one of two preliminary weeks, consisting of six shows over six nights. The top five from each preliminary week will meet in the semi-finals week, which requires them to perform eight-to-twelve minute long sets for another six shows.
The top five contestants will be performing at Sac State in the finals round. Each will perform twelve-to-fifteen minute long sets.
