The Seattle International Comedy Competition returns to the Bainbridge Performing Arts for the third year with 10 comedians perform, 5 from each of the 2 opening rounds. This show sells out well in advance, so get your tickets now!
Bainbridge Performing Arts promotes appreciation of and participation in the performing arts to build, educate and inspire our vibrant, creative community.
What began in 1956 as the only community organization to combine theatre, dance and music on Bainbridge Island thrives still today. A handful of volunteers with deep visionary roots, an eagerness for hard work, a readiness to perform anywhere, and financial allegiance planted a seed that flourished. Now, seamlessly woven into the fabric of Island life, BPA has emerged as the quintessential heart of Bainbridge Island ‘s artistic community, a gathering place for the energy, talent, and spirit of artists, writers, directors, musicians, dancers, students, volunteers, and impassioned audience members. Patrons from Bainbridge Island, Kitsap County, the Olympic Peninsula, Seattle, and beyond enjoy events at BPA.
Your Host: Dan Rosenberg
Dan Rosenberg is a comedian, writer, bodybuilder, radio host, husband, and father. One of those is not true. He has performed at comedy clubs and festivals across North America. Rosenberg has hosted radio shows for CBS Radio in Los Angeles, and is the author of The Book on Hosting: How Not to Suck as an Emcee. So we think it’s safe to say he knows what he is doing in that department.
