A Center audience favorite coming back for a fifth time!

No other festival or TV show can claim to have discovered as many future comedy superstars as the annual San Francisco Comedy Competition–including no less than Louis CK, Dana Carvey, Ellen DeGeneres and Robin Williams.

Performing at The Center will be 16 contestants in this year’s comedy competition, having survived an elimination process that started with hundreds of applicants. Each will offer up their very best 5 to 7 minute set. The night’s winner in the eyes of a prestigious panel of local judges will be announced at the conclusion of the show. Buy early for this one!

The Tommy Lama Experience

The master of ceremonies for tonight’s show is none other than self-guru, The Tommy Lama Experience. A session with Tommy will change your life. Hate your job? He can show you how to get fired. Need to quit smoking? Tommy will help you find an addiction better suited to your horoscope. Inadequate lover? Tommy Lama will help provide your wife with what she requires.

Watch out Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, and Joel Osteen. You may be converted.

The Tommy Lama Comedy Experience is a comedy spoof on the get-rich quick, self-help, and life coach gurus in America Today. The Tommy Lama Experience has enjoyed extended performances in Las Vegas at the Tropicana and Stratosphere Hotels.

Tommy Savitt is a previous winner of the Seattle International Comedy Competition and the Boston Comedy Festival as well as a two-time recipient of the LA Comedy Award for Stand-Up.
