You’ve Got Questions, We Have Answers!
Q: Does it cost to submit to the Oregon Comedy Competition?
A: Not at all! The competition is sponsored by PNW Comedy. They are covering all production and entertainment costs involving the competition.
Q: Will I be paid for my time?
A: Yes you will! Whether you’re in the first round or the finals, you’ll be compensated for your time!
Q: What is the compensation?
A: Straight to the point- each First Round comic will get a comped ticket to the show they are scheduled to perform on (for a friend/loved one), a food/drink comp, and a small cash payment (very small).
Q: What’s the point of doing this start-up, no-name competition?
A: Well, if you make it to The Finals and are voted the night’s best comic by the audience, you’ll receive $500 the night of the finals and you’ll be booked again as a headliner or feature at one of PNW Comedy regular show. You’ll also be invited back for the next year’s OCC to participate as the Host, MC or Feature.
Q: Are musical comedy acts eligible to participate?
A: Yes! If you consider yourself more of a comedy/stand-up act than a musical act, then you’re more than encouraged to submit the requested materials to the competition.
Q: I competed in another PNW Comedy competition last year. Any chance I could compete again?
A: Yes! All previous participants are eligible (and encouraged!) to compete again. The only people that cannot compete are previous winners, currently booked headliners and PNW Comedy staff/volunteers.
