Who is the Funniest Person in the Tri-Cities? Prepare for raucous laughter to find out at this exciting entertainment event to be held March 11, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. at The Social at 240 E. Main St. (doors open at 7pm and seating is first come first serve).
Up to 10 comedians will compete for three minutes each in an “American Idol” style format. Three judges featuring Shuli Egar from “The Howard Stern Show” and “The Jay Thomas Show” on Sirius XM will critique the comedians. Then the audience will decide the winner by text-message voting.
The winner will receive a cash prize and opening spot for a future E.T.N. Comedy event. Creators of the event recognize that there are many talented funny people in the Tri-Cities and it is their hopes that this will establish the area as a comedy hub attracting A-list comedians.
The Beer Run and Sleepy Owl Brewery will have craft beers on tap for those 21 and up and door prizes will be awarded.
