World class comedy cackles at CSUS

For more than two decades, the San Francisco Stand-up Comedy Competition has served as a major springboard for talented young acts throughout the country. Once again, Sacramento gets the chance to sit in on part of the laugh in.

The 26th annual semi-finals of the competition will be held at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 4 in California State University, Sacramento University Union Ballroom.

The semi-final round features 10 comedians, each of whom will offer up their best 12 minutes of material. Nationally recognized comedian Dan St. Paul will headline the event and serve as the show's host.

Though a competition, the evening will provide a showcase of the best up-and-coming comedic talent from across the nation. Past winners include Dana Carvey, Sinbad, Marsha Warfield and Carlos Alaraqui. And the caliber of five comedians who make it to the final rounds promises to be outstanding as evidenced by past finalists such as Ellen DeGeneres and Robin Williams.

Tickets for the event are $7 - 10 and can be purchased at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
