The search is on for the best standup comic in the United States and Canada – and this year The World Series of Comedy celebrates its 8th Anniversary in 2017 as America’s largest comedy contest! This will be our 3rd time going to McCurdy's Comedy Theatre in Sarasota, FL. Comedians qualify by submitting videos online. Over 100 comics will submit videos but only the top 40 will get to perform. Comics who qualify will travel to McCurdy's Comedy Theatre Satellite July 5-8, 2017! The top 3 will win guaranteed spots in The Main Event that will take place in Las Vegas in September with over 100 comics performing in a week long comedy festival. As an audience member you get to vote and help pick the winners so make sure your cell phone is all charged up! Different professional touring comics in every show.
