About 100 funny ladies from across the nation are in Long Island City this week vying for the honor of being declared the best female standup comic.

The final is set to take place at the Laughing Devil (47-38 Vernon Blvd) on Saturday night, where the winner will walk away with the title—as well as $2,000, some high-profile gigs, and the chance to be seen by the biggest names in the industry.

The event, called the She-Devil Comedy Festival, is in its second year and the competitors were selected after submitting videos. The festival was created by Steve Hofstetter, a co-owner of the club.

Throughout the week competitors have been in knock out rounds at four venues throughout the city (including the Laughing Devil and the Breadbox Cafe).  The quarter finals are scheduled for Thursday night and semi-finals on Friday. (see schedule).

“People should know that this is the biggest all-female comedy festival in the world and it happens in Long Island City,” said an excited Scott Sharp, the general manager of the Laughing Devil.
