This is the first night of the Semifinals of the 37th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition. We’ve taken the top 10 comedians out of the Preliminaries and allow them to compete to advance to the Finals. Only five advance, the rest go home.
The Edmonds Center for the Arts presents an array of outstanding performing artists from around the world, provides space, production management, and technical expertise for a variety of community partners and rental clients, and serves more than 65,000 patrons who enjoy the facility annually.
This show is sponsored by Susan Dunn, Gallaghers Where U Brew, Loughrin & Company CPAs and Tom & Valerie Wall. Thank you.
Your Host: Matt Billon
The Last 15 Years, Matt Billon has been making a name for himself on the Canadian Comedy Circuit. Whether it’s taking aim – with a pellet gun, no less – at insensitive siblings or bemoaning the fact he can never meet a girl who remembers her own phone number, Billon draws humor from his own life, no matter how embarrassing or incriminating.
Matt’s originally from Canada but calls comedy clubs across North America home.Matt’s solid reputation for his witty,
creative and unassumingly clever material has landed him feature appearances and specials such as the highly-regarded Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, been on Much Music’s “Video on Trial”, XM Satellite Radio’s “Laugh Attack”, and has his own one hour special on “The Comedy Network”. (Canadian TV)Billon has been the supporting act for Pauly Shore, Doug Stanhope,Harland Williams, Tommy Chong, Rob Schneider, Tom Green and just finished his fourth successful tour with Canadian Comedy Legend Mike MacDonald.
