Comedy CNY will turn the spotlight away from the professionals comedians this weekend and instead shine light on the new comers- all for Utica Comedy Cup 2015
The 2015 Utica Comedy Cup will take place at the Radisson Hotel- with the hopes of getting new talent to chase their comedy dreams. Local comics will preform their best acts in hopes of winning over the crowd and walking away with the nights grand prize.
The event, which is sponsored by the Radisson Hotel, 97.9/105.5 KISS FM, MadeInUtica.com, and CNYTrialLaw.com Attorney Nicholas A. Passalacqua, will be the largest local comedy showcase Utica has ever seen. There will be $350 in cash prizes up for grabs.
” The idea is that we are cultivating interest in comedy locally, so what we are doing is just getting comics, new comics, people who want to try it new comers coming up. We have 12 local comedians, everyone in the show is based in or around the Utica area and they are gonna go up and each comic will do a five minute set and the judges will vote and the crowd can participate and vote. Our favorite comic of the night will walk away with the trophy and a cash prize.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and a limited number of VIP tickets are available for $20. Tickets can be purchased online at comedycny.com. Doors open at 7 p.m.
