DSI Comedy Theater has become an exciting venue for standup comedy over the past two years. We have run a successful monthly showcase for local and traveling comics; DSI has presented Louis CK at the Cat's Cradle; DSI has run events for the Dirt Poor Comedy Tour and we're set to host the Regional Competition for the Rooftop Comedy College Standup competition coming up next month.

But now, it's time to step it up. So how about $1000!

DSI has organized a competition to determine "Carolina's Funniest Comic." 32 comedians are able to register and compete for up to $1000 cash and prizes. There are 5 weeks of comedy competition scheduled for a single elimination tournament judged by the audience.
