Comedy competition showcases rising talent

The semi-final round of the San Francisco International Stand-up Comedy Competition—a contest that has launched the careers of many notable comedians—comes to Sacramento State on Thursday, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the University Union Ballroom.

Since 1976, the competition has drawn hundreds of comedians to audition, while only 30 are chosen. Past competitors include celebrities such as Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Pollack, Roseanne Barr and Rob Schneider, among others. This year’s semi-final round will include 10 comedians doing 10-12 minutes sets. Five comedians will move on to compete in the final round of the contest for a $10,000 first prize.

Admission to the event is $10 general/$7 students. Tickets are available at the Sacramento State Ticket Office by calling (916) 278-4323 or visit tickets.com. For more information, call (916) 278-6997. For media assistance, contact the Sacramento State Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
