The contest began April 6 and more than 35 performers have taken the stage, but only five will move on to the next round. The 2012 Olympiad contest was an opportunity to invite amateur performers to a professional setting where they compete in front of a live audience and a qualified set of judges. May 18 will kick off the second round of performances from finalists and June will be the finals for the ultimate Golden-Laff Award. Contestants are vying for other various cash and prizes.
Doors open at 8:45 p.m. and show time is 9:30 p.m. Tickets cost $8 in advance and $10 the day of the show (fees may apply). For more information, visit www.renotahoecomedy.com or call 686-6600 or 322-5233 (LAFF).
