7th Annual San Diego's Funniest Person Contest! Free to Enter, San Diego, Monday, 20. November 2017

It’s one of my favorite shows ever produced at the Mad House and we’ve got a cool addition this year. I’ve always tried to make it as comic friendly and fair as possible while still getting an audience to perform for. It’s free to enter. You don’t have to submit a video and wait for someone to “admit” you to the prestigious contest. And, in the end, the best comedians gravitate to the top. Billy Bonnell, Zoltan Kaszas, Jesse Egan, Dallas McLaughlin, and James Schrader have all been past winners. Along the way everyone gets some stage time. The night of the finals we usually have every comedian in the city in the club for a big finals party.

NEW THIS YEAR!

The good folks at Rooftop Comedy are going to record the ALL the contest shows. Rooftop Comedy partners with comedians, sells online comedy content, and shares that money with the comedians. Typically, they will record a show and if they like the set …contact the comedian to see if they want those clips to be distributed online. They also produce comedy specials and shows. You can, and should, check them out here: . They will also provide you with a copy of your set if you wish.

What if I lose?

First, you’re definitely going to lose. Last year, by the end of the contest, over 150 comedians were eliminated and 1 comic won. Most everyone still had a fun and some stage time. If you fall short this year and it’s making you furious, you’ll probably feel better if you bash the club for not having the accounting firm of Blah Blah Blah judging, or claim we’re raking in the money by adding a bunch of Monday night shows when almost all other comedy club are smart enough to just close. Or, just save some time and call me a racist.

What I’m trying to “not so subtly say” is this, if you hate comedy contests or you feel like you might take it too seriously, you can certainly bash the club, or me, if that makes you feel better. But… you could also just… wait for it... not enter. That’s actually an option. You can just do another show somewhere else and blow up their page if you have a bad night or got a bad spot on the line up.

Having said all that. Please have fun with it. Prize money, rules, and info on how to enter are below. Dave Callans is hosting again so if you have further questions, bother him.

That’s it. Love you guys.

Robert

DETAILS
================================
If you would like to enter the contest all you have to do is join this event. Just to keep this fair as possible there will be no switching dates, no trading dates, and no trying to be an alternate if you've missed your date. If you do not show up to a scheduled show time without notifying the host beforehand, you will be automatically eliminated without a chance to reschedule. Sometimes things come up but to be fair no contestant may reschedule their date once it is confirmed on the event list.

The contest will be every Monday night from June 26th til it ends. Every comic performing will get one free guest the night that they perform. Additonal tickets can be purchased on the Mad House website.

There will be guest judges every week that will score each comedian and vote along with the crowd. The voting will be 25% Judge and 75% audience. Dave tries his best to get judges that are not friends with people here in the scene, but it's getting harder and harder to do that. Just trust that the judges will be objective. The judges that vote in the finals will be from out of town and without intimate knowledge of the contestants.

Round 1 will have comics each performing 7minute sets and the top 4 advance. For the first round, if a comic does not show we may take an alternate- you can try to be an alt if you have a scheduled date that has not yet passed, but not if you missed your date. However, alternates who have not signed up at all take precedence over people trying to get an earlier date.

Wild Card round will have a to-be-determined number of comics (depending on the number of comics that enter the contest) competing for however many spots we need to fill to make Round 2 an even amount of contestants.

Round 2 will have 8 comics performing 8 minute sets and 4 advance. For round 2 only- if a comic cannot make their scheduled date we will take the next-highest voted comic from Round 1. This is based on average score each comic got on their performance in Round 1.

Round 3 & the semi finals will be 9 minute sets, top 4 comics from each night advance.

The final round will have the top 8 contestants each performing 10 minute sets. Look above for prize details.

If audience members miss anyone's set or walk in halfway through the show they will not be allowed to vote. If you are a comic and you do not arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your show time then you will be the first contestant to go on stage. Otherwise the order will be picked at random when everyone arrives. The host will do a short set to warm up the crowd every show. In between comics the host will give a standard introduction without any credits to the next comic in order to keep the competition fair and based on individual sets of the current show.

*People officially employed by The Mad House Comedy Club and/or previous winners of San Diego’s Funniest Person will not be allowed to enter.

BOUNDARIES-
draw a line from Oceanside to Temecula to Alpine to the border. If you live inside that area you are eligible.
