Best of San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition

May 12 @ 8:00 pm

Presented by The Clark Center Association

For more than two decades, the San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition has served as a major career springboard for some of the most talented new comics in the country.

Past winners and finalists have achieved superstar status, including comedy legends like Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, and Ellen Degeneres.

Back at the Clark Center by popular demand, this show guarantees a great time, as a new group of Competition winners takes the stage by storm with only one goal in mind – to make you laugh!
