Comedy Smackdown - Goodnight's to Host World Series of Comedy East Coast Regional

Goodnight's Comedy Club will host the East Coast Regional of the World Series of Comedy, a national stand-up comedy competition, from July 13 through July 16. Forty comics will compete through six shows at Goodnights Comedy ClubGoodnight's to determine the East Coast winner.

Like its namesake, the World Series of Comedy is a series of competitions that lead to a championship. In this version, the players are stand-up comics armed with only a microphone and jokes to help them hit it out of the park.

Approximately 500 professional and amateur stand-up comics nationwide compete in the World Series of Comedy every year.

Comics who win a spot to participate in the Las Vegas event receive the added value of face-to-face time with talent buyers.  Tickets for the World Series of Comedy East Coast Regional range from $11.75 to $17.25 and are available for purchase at Website, or by calling (919) 828-5233.

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
