Although Lake Tahoe isn’t exactly the Bay Area, the region will be part of the San Francisco Comedy Competition this week when a dozen comics battle it out at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa Saturday.
“The San Francisco Comedy Competition is an annual, multi-week, judged, stand-up comedy contest,” according to organizers. “Over thirty comedians, out of hundreds who apply, perform in shows held in comedy clubs, bars, restaurants, casinos and theaters in San Francisco and around the Bay Area.”
The Lake Tahoe elimination competition at the 38th annual event will feature a dozen comics who have made it through qualifying rounds at other Northern California venues, according to a press release from promoters. The comics will have 3-7 minutes to woo the audience and judges.
“The top five comedians from each preliminary week will meet in the semi-finals, which requires them to perform 8-12 minute long sets for another six shows. The top five from the semi-finals move on to the finals in San Francisco.”
Notable past comics in the prestigious San Francisco competition have been Louis CK, Ellen DeGeneres, Wanda Sykes, Robin Williams, David Crowe, Doug Stanhope and Dana Carvey, according to the release.
