30th Anniversary Gala: Reach for the Stars

Family Advocates is a non-profit organization that has spent the last 30 years helping abused and neglected children in La Porte County. The pandemic has taken a toll on the entire country which is why we are having a virtual event this year. If there was ever a time to laugh it is now so we would like to invite comedians to compete in a virtual comedy competition.

The comedian with the most votes will win:

  • $1,000 & a Promotional Package or (EPK) Electronic Press Kit valued at $2,000.
  • Runner-up will win $200.
  • Live voting will take place during the event to determine the winner.
  • Our virtual event will air on Friday, November 13, 2020 with recorded routines.

If you are interested in competing;

  • Submit completed form and performance video link.
  • All applicants are considered.
  • We ask that acts stay PG 13 due to the audience being virtual.
  • Video performance will be judged against all other applicants by a 5 judge panel.
  • Those that make it through to the final will have the opportunity to perform their best 5 minutes in a recorded clip where the winner will be determined by the live voting.
  • Submissions must be submitted by October 21, 2020.
  • All entries will be reviewed and those that make it to the final will be notified by November 1, 2020.
