The annual Funniest Person in Austin contest has become a national beacon for Austin comedy and the biggest event all year round for our local stars.

The contest draws in everyone from seasoned comedic vets to rookies, some of whom have never even performed in front of a live audience. Needless to say, it's a guaranteed good time! 

Along with $5000.00 in cash prizes, the contest also offers the chance for our local artists to showcase live in front of representatives from Comedy Central, International Artists Agency, club & festival bookers, and TV Talent executives during the Semi-Finals & Final nights.

F.P.I.A. begins Monday April 2nd, with twelve preliminary rounds running Mondays, Tuesdays and Sundays through Tuesday May 1st. Semi-Final nights will be Sunday, May 6th though Tuesday May 8th. The Final night of the contest will be Monday, May 14th.
