Since its inception in 2007, Late Comedy Showdown has grown into one of our most popular late night events.
Jokes range from video games, anime, manga, nerd culture, Japanese pop culture, and cosplay.
Late Comedy Showdown consists of two events:
Tryouts: Do you think you’re funny? Or do you just want a laugh? Either way you’re bound to have fun at the Late Comedy Show: Tryouts! Come on in to contend for a spot in the Finals or simply relax with friends.
Finals (Ticketed): The competitors have been selected and it’s now an all-out battle of jokes and jibes where the audience determines who will be crowned the champion!
Check out the video below for a recap from last year’s Late Comedy Showdown!
