Ready to make us laugh?

ModestoView and the Gallo Center for the Arts are presenting a new talent contest at the performing arts venue on Friday, May 20. “The ModestoView Clean Comedy Competition” will feature five comedians vying for a $500 prize and automatic entry into the Gallo Center’s seventh annual “Valley’s Got Talent” show on August 26 & 27.

The five comedians chosen by ModestoView and the Gallo Center to participate in the competition will each perform an 8 to 10-minute stand-up routine. The winner will be chosen by a panel that includes representatives of the local arts and entertainment community, as well as Jon Fox, producer of the prestigious, 40-year old San Francisco Comedy Competition as well as the Seattle International Comedy Competition.

There is no cost to enter the competition, which is open to any non-professional comics, at least 16 years of age, who reside in Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Merced, Tuolumne and Calaveras counties. Contestants must complete an application and return it by mail to the Gallo Center no later than April 8. A YouTube or other video link to a stand-up performance example, or a DVD, is required with the application. Auditions will take place on a date to be announced.
