The Cleveland Comedy Awards

Appearing: March 26 |  Buy Tickets

The comedy scene in Cleveland has far outgrown small mentions and random awards with its great comedians, events and venues. So…in early 2018, Hilarities and ComedicCLE will proudly present the 1st Annual Cleveland Comedy Awards (2017)!

The best comedians, sketch groups, comedy venues, podcasts and more will be presented the “Silver Yo-Yo” award! 

The show will also include guest performances and surprise presenters, as well as athletes and other entertainers in attendance. 

Instead of an ordinary red carpet walk, the CCAs will have ‘Carpets for a Cause’, supporting a charitable organization which will be announced November 1.

A significant amount of the proceeds will go to this charity.






ATTENTION COMEDIANS:  We need your help to pick the very best clubs,

comics, hosts, etc. from around town by nominating them!
