The Preliminaries wrap up at the notorious Crows Nest in Santa Cruz. 15 comics take to the stage, only five advance to the finals.
Located right on the beach, the Crow’s Nest has been the hot spot for comedy in Santa Cruz for decades. A favorite with locals and visitors alike. Reservations are welcomed, but not required. Reservations can be made for parties of up to 12 by phone, up to two weeks in advance. The Crow’s Nest only reserves 1/3 of our dining room tables, so walk-ins are always welcome.
