See that stage, it could be yours. Well not exactly that stage, and it wouldn’t exactly be all yours, but you could be on it. Thanks to the first ever Arizona Comedy Festival, you or a someone you know can put their comedic talent to use and enter for a chance to perform live at the festival in April of 2012. So why are we bringing you this event so gosh darn early? Well, this festival of laughs is opening up time slots to certain worthy comics who have yet to be discovered. As the festival is currently taking nationwide submissions, the event was created in hopes of bringing the comedy community together. In addition to that, a portion of the proceeds will benefit KidTix, providing opportunities to children to attend sporting events, concerts, festivals or any other event that they would normally never have the chance to attend.
So, if you think you got what it takes (as you endlessly practice your jokes in the mirror), go ahead and enter, we dare you. And why not as this could truly be your call to fame as the top 10 submissions will be invited to perform at the event. After those lucky 10 take the mic under the bright lights, three finalists will be chosen as the winner will take home $2,000 in cash and personal invites to open for major headliners across the nation. So, as you’re rehearsing your jokes in your head as you read this, picture this, celebrity judges, celebrity hosts, a special guest performer, and your jokes leaving the audience in stitches. Now, all we have to say, is good luck, we hope to see the next Dane Cook be from Arizona.
