More than 100 professional comics compete for laughs, gigs, and a write-up in the Comic Bible magazine during The World Series of Comedy, a six-night festival that ends in the crowning of one comedy master. Each night, after a series of standup routines and arguments over whoopee-cushion ownership, a winner is chosen (the audience has a hand in choosing the comic champion) to compete in the first show on Saturday night. The top three performers from Saturday's first show move onto the finals, which consist of a second show on Saturday night and a literal battle of wits. Top-rated laugh conjurers can win a portion of the some 50 weeks of employment being offered by various comedy clubs, a CD recording deal with Uproar Entertainment, and a date to the junior prom.
