Harlem Comedy Competition Show 3rd Round

  • Shrine Harlem 2271 Adam Clayton Powell Junior Boulevard New York, NY, 10030 United States (map)

Unlike a majority of comedy festivals the Harlem comedy festival falls into two categories both competition and showcase. While most competitions are single elimination tournaments where one comedian moves on each round and at most performs twice. The Harlem Comedy festival will have fifteen competitors perform at least three times. We do this by having three rounds of five comedians doing six minute sets each and the other ten comedians doing rapid fire two minute sets each. The three winners of those respective competitions will perform a fourth time. The first place winner will win a fifth performance as the feature of the best of the fest show. All three winners get a cash prize.
