State of Laughter

You think you’re funny? Arizona’s Funniest Comedian Contest wants to find out.

The statewide competition features homegrown comics who have competed at comedy clubs in Tucson and the Valley throughout February and March. This week, four shows at Stand Up Live will pit more performers against one another as a panel of experts determines who moves on and who can’t cut it.

The first-place winner receives a month of work at the Tempe Improv, Stand Up Live, and the Palm Beach and FTL improvs. Prizes will also be given to second and third place, the winner of college entrants, and the “rising star” award.

See who could be the next David Spade and who falls flat on their face at Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street. Admission to the 21-and-over show is $10, and there's a two-drink minimum. Call 480-719-6100 or visit for tickets and see for details.

Tue., March 4, 8 p.m.; Wed., March 5, 8 p.m.; Sun., March 9, 8 p.m.; Tue., March 11, 8 p.m., 2014
