Idaho Pun Slam is putting on the Upstaged Comedy Competition and you (or your funny friend) are invited to audition! Here's what you need to know!

If you think you can prepare 1-3 minutes of original comedy and you're willing to take the stage (as terrifying as that may sound), then you should audition for the Upstaged Comedy Competition presented by Adam and Eve! There are two audition events:

  • Sunday, August 8th from 7-10 pm at Somewhere Bar in Garden City &
  • Thursday, August 12th from 7-10 pm at Somewhere Bar.

You're asked to prepare just 1-3 quick minutes of ORIGINAL comedy. Don't go stealing bits from the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or they'll sniff you out. Here's the good news... People in the world of comedy know how stressful and dread filled this process can be for first timers so I"m sure they'll take that into consideration, though it is comedy so you should try your best to be funny. Who knows, though? If you truly are a funny individual, this could be the start of an awesome comedy career! You could be the next Dane Cook! The future Sarah Silverman! The Jay Leno of the 2030's (never mind, don't be Jay Leno). See, there's a reason I'm not a comedian, all my stuff falls flat but you could probably pull it off.

Good luck with your audition and may this be the start of a great comedy career, you superstar you... Just don't forget where you first read about it. I'm just sayin'...
