Amateur Comedy Contest

Presented by Burren Comedy at The Burren, Somerville MA

Amateur Comedy Contest

Come hang in the back room of the world famous Burren in Davis Square and watch new comics compete for a $50 prize and veteran stand ups run material and not-compete. It’s judged by audience applause and it’s a real loose time!

This Wednesday at 10pm and every other Wednesday for that matter, the back room of the world famous Burren in Davis Square hosts Boston’s premier comedy competition.

Come hang in a cool performance space and watch aspiring comics vye for glory/a $50 dollar prize (judged by audience applause! Bring that enthusiasm!). Plus, Boston’s best comics stop by throughout the night to try new material and fill whatever void their parents created in their souls!

There’s no cover, so come grab a beer
