Comedy competition comes to campus

Sacramento State will once again play host to the annual San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition. The University is the second of six stops presenting a final round of the 30th year of the contest. The laughs will commence at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6 in the University Union Ballroom.

The event will showcase five finalists each doing a 15-to 20-minute set while vying for the $30,000 grand prize. The contest consists of four rounds, with 25 shows in 26 days from Santa Cruz to Chico. Thousands try out to land a spot on the traveling comedy challenge, but only the funniest 30 are chosen. Since 1976, the contest has served as a career catalyst for numerous comedians including Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Roseanne Barr and Rob Schneider.

General admission tickets are $10, $7 for Sacramento State students. For more information or for tickets, contact the Sacramento State Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com. For media assistance, contact the Sacramento State Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
