If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then the From Hollywood to Hollywood contest at the Palm Beach Improv is for you. Over the course of three weeks, several comics will be chosen by audience voting to win one of three prizes. Third place is a $100 gift certificate to the Improv Comedy Club, which helps cover those pesky drink minimums. Second place is the opportunity to emcee a weekend at one of the Florida Improv clubs. But the most-loved comic and first-place winner gets a flight to and hotel stay in Hollywood, California, to perform a guest spot at the Hollywood Improv. While in Hollywood, they will also meet with a talent agent to kick off his or her fabulous new career traveling the country, hanging out in seedy nightclubs, and getting yelled at by drunks who think theyre funnier than you. What a life!
Performances begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Palm Beach Improv (550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach), though more dates will be added to that location if response is good. Performances will also be held at 8 p.m. April 13, 19, and 27 at the Fort Lauderdale Improv (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood) and on April 13 and 20 at the Miami Improv (3390 Mary St., Miami). You must sign up in advance, and entry is $5, but you can pack the club with as many friends and loved ones as you want. Visit palmbeachimprov.com, or friend them on Facebook.
