Acme's Funniest Person In The Twin Cities
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 27th - 31st, 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 2013" on September 3rd.
