Jon on stage at the Whistler Comedy Showdown.

Tonight is the second round of the Whistler Comedy Showdown at Buffalo Bills, which means another seven amateur comedians will be gracing the stage to make us hoot and holler.

The doors open at 7pm and believe us you want to be there early to grab a seat before the show starts at 8pm.

Tickets: Tonight’s event entry is by a minimum donation of $5. The finals are part of WSSF, so a $20 needs to be purchased.

There’s also some prize money up for grabs thanks to the folks at Gibbons and Absolut:

Hilarious Person: $1,000
Funny Person: $500
Amusing Person: $250

Partial proceeds go to Zero Ceiling, who provides employment and adventure-based learning programs that empower at-risk youth and young adults to develop life skills and achieve personal growth.

So, Who Made It through Round One?

Comedian and finalist Emily.

I’m stoked to make it to the finals – I think I’m hilarious and now I know I am! – Emily

Comedian and finalist Jon.

I was blown away by my fellow comics last night…each one brought their A game. Didn’t think I had a chance.
Very grateful to be in the finals and even more so to be a part of the growing comedy scene in Whistler. – Jon

Comedian and finalist Kyle.

I’m stoked to be moving onto the finals. All the comics were great last night and it was a good crowd too. Need to find a place to move my trailer by Friday so if anyone knows a spot to park it lemme know. – Kyle

Comedian and finalist Andrew Slater.

The whole setup at Bill’s was prime. It was a great space with a great audience. The simple fact of making it to the finals is a huge win because every one of the comics who went up was a contender. As for the finals, I personally am planning to employ the same strategy as the qualifying round: have fun. I will consider it a win-regardless of what place I wind up in- if I can do a set that will generate LOTS of laughter and that I am happy with. The rest is in the judges’ hands. – Andrew

Come join us this evening at Buffalo Bills for Round Two!
