      A showcase of up-and-coming comedians will perform and the audience will get to vote live for their favorite acts! The favorite acts of the night will advance to the finals on Saturday, October 5 and perform for a chance to win our biggest ever, $1,000 cash prize and the coveted Utica Comedy Cup trophy! You can register as a performer and purchase tickets to ANY of the the playoff rounds or the finals, click on the dates to see and interact with the Facebook event for each show: ROUND 1 of the 2019 Utica Comedy Cup Playoffs is FRIDAY, September 6 at Tom Cavallos! ROUND 2 of the 2019 Utica Comedy Cup Playoffs is SATURDAY, September 7 at Tom Cavallos! ROUND 3 of the 2019 Utica Comedy Cup Playoffs is FRIDAY, September 20 at Tom Cavallos! ROUND 4 of the 2019 Utica Comedy Cup Playoffs is SATURDAY, September 21 at Tom Cavallos! THE COMEDY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP is SATURDAY, October 5 at Tom Cavallos!  RULES OF ENTRY: Registration is open to any and all first time performers, and actively working comedians who are not headlining professionally on a regular basis. Comedy CNY will have the final say over which comedians are eligible to enter. Registration is $20 and must be purchased online prior to the deadline of August 15, 2019. There are a total of 32 spots available. Registration fees reserve your spot and our non-refundable if you're unable to perform for any reason. Comedians will receive between 5-10 minutes to perform. The exact length of each set will depend on the number of comics on each show and will be finalized sometime after registration closes August 15. The comics will take the stage in a randomized order that will be determined prior to the show date. You will know when you're going on before the night of the show if you follow our social media and event pages. There are no content or language restrictions, but we do encourage each performer to consider their use of especially explicit content regarding sex, race, or politics, as your goal is to get the most audience votes at the end of the evening. Each audience member will vote for their top 3 favorite acts directly from their phones. Audience vote will determine the favorite acts of each night, but Comedy CNY staff and owners reserve the right to act as judges in the case of an especially close result or tie. Comics will be given a 1 minute warning "light" from offstage and must finish their set within the next minute. There will be 1 minute buffer if they go over their allowed time, but any performer who exceeds their allotted time by longer than 1 minute will be disqualified. The top two favorite acts at the end of the night will advance to our finals on Saturday October 5, 2019. Every performer that registers must be available to perform at the finals should they advance. The favorite act of the finals will receive a $1,000 cash prize. There will be cash prizes for our runners up, tentatively set to be $300 for 2nd and $200 for 3rd, but those amounts are subject to change until registration is completed. All performers agree to have photos, video, and media of them taken and shared across all of our social media platforms. All playoff rounds and the finals will be held at Tom Cavallos upstairs banquet room. Our showroom seats 80 guests and, due to the popular nature of these events, are likely to sell out. Any friends and family of performers who would like to attend our encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online, as they will not be guaranteed the night of each show. All rules of entry, performance requirements, locations, prices and prizes are subject to change.
