For the 12th year in a row, the Boston Comedy Festival is pitting a diverse lineup of side splitters against each other for a $10,000 grand prize and the chance to coax giggles from top managers, agents and talent scouts. Laughter-packed preliminary rounds spotlight at least 10 comics who were carefully harvested from across the globe, either through an arduous audition process or pie fights with stern anti-humor magistrates. An assortment of comedic styles helps maintain a healthy concord of cackles, and special guest appearances during select rounds add celebrity fuel to an already roaring fire of revelry. Additionally, many past finalists and winners have landed on national television, granting festival audiences sneak peaks at budding jokesters before they become famous or sign lucrative contracts to perform in outer space.
