Who’s the Funniest Celebrity in Washington?
Funniest Celebrity in Washington Contest
What Where How and Why
The Funniest Celebrity in Washington Contest, now in its 15th year, is an opportunity for journalists, politicians, sports figures and other local celebrities to compete for the title of Funniest Celebrity in Washington. Once one has won the title, he/she always remains a Funniest Celebrity in Washington Champion. The year after you win your title, you perform a “guest set” as the reigning champion.
There are three rules defining who can compete for the title:
- Someone who is from Washington can compete
- Someone who lives in Washington now can compete
- The person can not be a professional comedian who performs comedy for a living.
The event features anywhere between eight and twelve celebrities, each performing three to five minutes of stand-up comedy. If they prefer to do a humorous skit or song, that is fine.
