Magooby's Joke House Presents... Our TWICE MONTHLY "New Talent" Showcase And Competition
Are you brand new to comedy, a seasoned "open miker" or just starting out as a paid pro? Maybe you're the funniest guy or gal in your office. Whatever your level, Magooby's Joke House wants to see what you've got!
ON BOTH THE SECOND AND LAST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH (with some exceptions....check schedule below), we'll be holding a NEW TALENT SHOWCASE AND COMPETITION. The funniest performer of the evening will win a $75 CASH PRIZE PLUS A $25 PAID GUEST SPOT FOR A FUTURE REGULAR WEEKEND SHOW AND WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY ELIGIBLE TO COMPETE IN OUR ANNUAL "NEW COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR" COMPETITION. Judging is based on a combination of audience vote and jury panel. You WILL be asked to help bring an audience and the more people you bring the more time you'll get. However, past winners have included comics who brought a lot of friends and some who only brought a few. IT STILL COMES DOWN TO HOW FUNNY YOU ARE! Show will include a performance by our weekly national headliner. This gives the new performer a free opportunity to both work in front of, as well as learn from, a seasoned veteran with national comedy club and television credits. Plus we now offer discounted drink specials on Thursdays for you, your friends and family to enjoy! Those of you who have participated in the past know that we always get a great audience and now you have an opportunity to work on your craft twice a month at our new 350 seat comedy theatre located in Timonium. We hope you'll take advantage of the opportunity and look forward to seeing you at the next showcase.
