The three comics that receive the most votes in each individual heat will move on to The Finals on December 14th at Langer’s Entertainment Center in Sherwood. (All comics have 5 to 8 minutes. Doing less than or more than the allotted time may result in disqualification.)

And what happens next? The nine comics that moved on from the First Round shows will be invited to The Finals on December 14th! Exactly like in the First Round shows, after all the comics perform that night a vote will take place asking who had the evening’s best performance. The comic that receives the most votes gets the cash, future bookings, and the title of the 2021 Western Oregon Comedy Competition Champion!

All shows are for ages 18 & up except for at nights at Langer’s Entertainment Center, which allows for ages 21 & up. Tickets can be purchased online at and Eventbrite, with any remaining tickets available for purchase at the door. Online tickets will be seated first.
