BFP 2015 AUDITION REGISTRATION FORM
All potential contestants must have no more than three (3) months total stand-up comedy experience prior to auditions, and have performed at fewer than twelve (12) open mics.
Any previous headlining, feature, or guest stand-up comedy performances will disqualify a potential contestant from participating in Boise's Funniest Person, whether or not he or she was compensated.
All potential contestants MUST be age 21 or over.
We understand that "comedy experience" can be difficult to quantify, so please err on the side of limiting your experience. If you're unsure, please come out to audition! We'll ask clarifying questions during the interview process.
Good luck! We look forward to meeting you!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR AUDITION
BFP auditions are very casual. We know you’re new to this, so we don’t expect a polished routine, set, or monologue -- we just want to get a feel for your personality and sense of humor! We’ll chat with you for a few minutes, ask you a couple pertinent questions, and then ask you to stand up and tell us one of your favorite jokes or funny anecdotes (no more than a minute or two). We’ll then take your photo, and send you on your way! The whole process will last no more than ten minutes.
