Late Late Breakfast
It's time once more for Late Late Breakfast's one-day, thirty-two comedian, blowout single-elimination comedy Tournament of Champions to determine just who will be crowned THE KING OF BREAKFAST for 2018!

Over a period of five rounds, our tournament is a gauntlet of comedic challenges testing all sorts of skills, from quick wits to teamwork to performing amidst utter chaos.

As the number of comedians dwindles, the sets get longer and the challenges get wilder. WHO WILL SURVIVE AND WHAT WILL BE LEFT OF THEM?

Decisions in each round will be determined by audience applause, as judged by the midwest's only officially licensed Comedy Referee, Tom Wisdom. He is fair and just. His word is our law.

Only one comedian will make it through all five rounds and prove they have what it takes to be the King of Breakfast.

Doors and Pizza at 2pm, Show starts at 3pm.
