[There’s three legitimate comedy competitions in the Bay Area. There’s the San Francisco Comedy Competition, a veritable marathon of a crushed emotions, where comics of a certain level, feel a certain level of rejection. Then, there’s Bunjo’s Comedy Competition, centrally located in Dublin/Pleasanton, a rite of passage for bringers to battle bringers and eat Chinese food. Then, there’s the Walk the Plank competition. Formerly housed at Castagnola’s Wharf Room (PIRATES, DO YOU GET IT!), Walk the Plank always felt more honest and legitimate than any other competition I’ve seen. Maybe because there’s a sense of camaraderie, or a balanced scoring system, or an a pedigree of great champions. Alas, it returns after a brief hiatus and the gates are wide open. If you’ve never participated before, get on it: good stage time for an excited audience in a fair, fun affair.]
