Each year, The Grand and Out & About scour the region for comedy’s most promising, undiscovered talents and invite them here to show off their best material with the hope of being named top comic.

Up to 10 finalists are chosen from the applicant pool based on content and delivery. Each live competition has brought more and more laughs to our audiences, and proves a difficult job for our panel of local judges. The LOL winner receives prize money plus a feature story in Out & About and an invitation to host the next LOL competition.

Join our audience for a hilarious night at the baby grand when the 6th annual LOL@ TheGrand competition returns on March 24, 2017! Tickets are on sale now. Looking to compete? Click “Apply Here” button for more information!

  • Alex Grubard (2013)
  • Missy Grynkiewicz (2014)
  • Lou Misiano (2015, pictured)
  • Michael J. Brooks (2016, pictured)
