Miss Comedy Queen –Promoter FAQ’s

Q: What is the total cost of a Miss Comedy Queen Preliminary Pageant?

A: Your total required expenses are $500, plus you are responsible for hotel and travel arrangements for the reigning national titleholder.

Q: What are my financial obligations?

A: Included in the $500 is: The 2 required entry fees ($150 each) for the winner and first alternate from your preliminary contest to compete at the National Miss Comedy Queen Pageant (A deposit must be received and contracts signed before you can announce and/or schedule your preliminary pageant) and the required $200 fee for the reigning national titleholder to be present and oversee your mandatory contestant registration and meeting, perform up to three numbers at your preliminary pageant and to help motivate contestants and promote your preliminary. This fee is due the night of your pageant.

 Q: Can I send more than 2 contestants to the National Pageant?

A: No. In an effort to have a larger contestant pool for other preliminary pageant promoters, only the winner and first alternate of your preliminary are eligible to compete at the National Miss Comedy Queen Pageant. The board of directors does however, have the right to appoint “wild card” contestant(s) to compete at the National Pageant provided that they have entered a minimum of two preliminary pageants without qualifying to compete at the national contest if and only if they have exhausted all preliminaries within a reasonable distance from where they live.

Q: Can I appoint a representative my first year?

A: Yes!  You may appoint one representative for a total of $750 your first year only providing you sign a contract and agree to hold a preliminary the following year.  If you choose to have a crowning ceremony, the fee would be $950 plus hotel and travel for the national titleholder. The following year, you would only be responsible for travel and lodging plus $200 for the reigning national titleholder. You may not appoint more than one year without written permission from Addison.

Q: Who determines the prize monies, special entertainment, and awards for my pageant?

A: Prize package (including but not limited to hotel and travel for the national contest), entertainment and awards are entirely up to you. We do recommend a minimum $500 package for the winner ($300 cash, $100 in travel and $100 for room) and a minimum $350 package for the 1st alternate ($150 cash, $100 in travel and $100 for room) broken up in installments to ensure attendance at the national contest.  Any contestant that does not show up to the national contest after qualifying will be placed on a banned list and will not be able to compete, attend or judge any ANR function (including but not limited to your preliminary) without confirmation that they have paid back and returned any prizes and/or monies plus the $150 entry fee paid by the promoter.

 Q: Is there a certain crown that I have to use for my pageant?

A: No. You can use any crown that you choose. 

Q: How long is my obligation if I hold a preliminary pageant?

A: You are only obligated from the time you sign the preliminary paperwork to the end of the final night of competition at the National Miss Comedy Queen Pageant. After that, it is entirely up to you whether or not you decide to renew. Only active preliminaries retain the rights to the name.

Q: Can I attend the National Pageant?

A: Yes! All promoters get 2 complimentary passes to all nights of the national contest.
