Description

The Boston Comedy Festival is holding it's 18th annual Stand Up Comedy Contest and you will not want to miss this preliminary round! Watch and cheer for 12 of the best stand up comedians from around the country compete for a $10,000 grand prize. Be there to support your favorite!

Hosted By: Tom Dustin

I'm from Boston and I do stand-up comedy for a living. I've won a few competitions including a big one in Canada which was televised in 2010 on "The Comedy Network" (Canadian Comedy Central) and paid me $25,000 that I quickly squandered. I'll always love you, Canada.

Comedy Central in the U.S. picked me for the "Up Next" certified club talent search in 2013, but has yet to put me on their network. What gives? I love you guys, but come on. My parents are gonna die before they get to see me do standup on American television and I'm gonna be sad about it. You have the power to prevent that. I'll be waiting by the phone, expecting your call.

Anyway, I've been a part of the Boston Comedy Festival for the past 10 years, and perform at all the clubs in Boston (except one; ask me, I'll tell you the story). I spend about 30 weeks per year on the road, working at comedy clubs across the country (all over New England, alot of the midwest and the eastern seaboard). In winter, I book all my gigs in Florida and the Bahamas because I despise shivering and shoveling.

I love working at comedy clubs, and I'm really good at it, which is probably why they all keep asking me back every year. By the way, thanks for that, comedy bookers. I love you too.
