To Enter: There are three elements to this contest…

  1. There is no entry fee for this contest but you must be a current Round Table subscriber through the duration of the contest — from entry to the date of the show. To subscribe go to
  2. You must submit a clip or link to a video (Youtube or your own website is fine) of you performing stand-up. It doesn’t have to be the material you’ll perform at the show, but it should be a good representation of your comedy style and performance skills. You can also make your own video as long as it demonstrates your stand-up skills.
  3. And because we think comedians should always be writing, we want you to submit a 15-joke monologue on the topic of Stand-Up Comedy.
