Eight years ago Albuquerque comedian and actor, Rusty Rutherford, realized there was something missing from our city’s stand-up comedy scene: community. At the time there were only a handful of stand-up comedians in the 505, and an “every-man-for-himself” mentality as each one tried to climb the comedy ladder on their own. Rutherford wanted to bring the same since of community and camaraderie to the stand-up scene that he experienced in the theatre world. Rutherford created the 3rd Thursday’s Comedy Contest, a monthly competition where 10 comics with varying levels of experience would compete and the audience would decide the winners that would be invited back the following month. The competition aspect was a fun challenge for the comedians, but was secondary to having a fun show with a good audience and kickin’ it with other comics.

Since its conception, the show has taken place in hookah lounges, bars, theatres, and its current home, Tractor Brewery in Wells Park. On Thursday, April 21st, 2016 we’ll be celebrating the show’s 8-year anniversary by bringing back all of the first place winners from the past year for a “best-of-the-best” competition. For the first time ever this anniversary show will be free of charge.
