-The comedians are broken into 2 Teams at random, (Team Seely and Team Auggie), each Team will perform at two different venues on Nights 1, 2, & 3.

-Each comedian in both Teams will be scored and ranked 1-10 each show. After the first two nights the Top 4 from each Team will be selected and then move onto the finals on Saturday, Oct. 10th at The Historic Babcock Theater in downtown Billings,MT. That night a comedian will be crowned the Winner of The Big Sky Comedy Festival.
