Comedy vs. Tragedy is a variety competition show in Portland, Oregon. The show has been going since 2017. Three poets, three musicians and three comedians compete to win cash prizes. The audience gets to pick the winners. Each show has a feature from previous winner of the competition. At each show we do a raffle for the audience as well.
How it works
ROUND ONE – NINE PERFORMERS
Three poets will perform one piece in their round. Then the audience will select their favorite performance by applause and that poet will advance to the final round. Then three comedians will perform and the audience will select one to advance. Then three musicians will perform and the audience will select one of them to join the poet and the comedian in the final round.
ROUND TWO – THREE PERFORMERS
The winning poet, musician and comedian will each perform in random order. The audience will choose the winner by applause. Winner receives a cash prize and a future headline spot at a future Nova Productions show.
