Las Vegas, September 25, 2013 – LVCS announces the highly anticipated return of The World Series of Comedy (WSOC) to the Tuscany Suites & Casino for its 4th annual Main Event on September 23-28, 2013. The WSOC not only includes a week-long comedy competition with 101 comics competing in 14 comedy shows, but also an entire week of comedy seminars, networking events, a meet & greet conference with comedy club owners and bookers from the U.S. and Canada, and other special surprises.
With more stand-up comedians and comedy club owners and bookers participating every year, The WSOC is quickly becoming one of the best comedy festivals in the nation. “This is Las Vegas’ only comedy festival,” said Joe Lowers, creator and producer of the WSOC. “In addition to it being Las Vegas’ only comedy festival, it is also the only comedy festival in the nation geared towards the up-and-coming feature comedian rather than the more seasoned headliner. I created this event to help the newer comics get more work and get into more clubs, and the positive response and success has been wonderful.”
About the Las Vegas Comedy Show
The Las Vegas Comedy Show produces not only the WSOC, but The Joe Show as well. The Joe Show, also at the Tuscany Suites & Casino, is owner and creator, Joe Lowers’, weekly stand-up comedy show. He headlines this goofy, silly, unique comedy show, and supports local talent by booking local up-and-coming comedians to host and feature.
