The contest is open to anyone at least 18 years of age regardless of experience. Previous Hey Guys Contest winners are not eligible to compete.


The entry fee is $25.00, which will include the contestant’s ability to leave up to 5 names on a pass list every evening they are performing in the competition. (Public tickets will be $5.00).   Contestants should sign up at . No walk-in registrations will be taken.  All registrations and entry fees must be received by Hey Guys Comedy prior to January 31, 2018 to be entered.

Contestants will be randomly assigned their first week by blind draw.  You must be available to perform in any of the eight weeks the contest runs. No special consideration will be given.


Each performance will be scored by 4 judges consisting of local celebrities, business owners, and employees (not owners) of Hey Guys Comedy. The judges will award each contestant up to 100 points with 25 points possible in each of the following criteria:

  • Stage Presence
  • Originality
  • Audience Response
  • Overall Comedic Content (how funny you were)

Points will be subtracted for timing issues.  The contestant will lose .1 of a point for every second (1 point for every 10 seconds) they are under or over their allotted time. Part of being a working comic is being able to work within the time limits a club owner assigns you.

There will be no audience vote.  While this is a comedy contest, not a “who has the most friends” contest, there is a category for audience response so having a friendly crowd will benefit you.
