Back in the day, my students and clients won most of the Comedy Contests held across the USA.
These are my thoughts as printed in the San Francisco Sunday Entertainment section:
"Comedy Roots"

For me to coach and co-write your act to victory this year,
you first of all have to pass the 43rd San Francisco & Seattle Comedy Competition’s audition requirements.
Applications will be accepted May 1 through August 1, 2018:

You can make use of my services before/during/and after the contest:

I’d recommend we meet at least an hour/week between now and
when you submit your 10-minute audition video.

During the competition, we would want to meet as necessary.

Here’s the story behind my coaching Ronn Lucas to win both the SF and National Comedy Competitions.
This is from my newsletter, "Coach Says,” Vol. 1, issue ii.
It requires the Flash player which comes pre-installed on most Mac and Windows computers.
“Life as a Comedy Coach,” p. 14-18:

Alternately, here are five screen shots of the same pages:

Taylor Mason still makes me share the "blame" for his winning the “Star Search” $100,000.
And Ross Shafer offers his astonished comments after I helped him win the Seattle Comedy Competition
which lead to his hosting Fox TV’s “The Late Show."
Here’s further endorsements from Ronn, Taylor, Ross and a few more folks:

Crucial information on the contests
and categories where you can score points:
Material, Stage Presence, Delivery, Technique, Audience Response, Audience Rapport,
and the judges' "Gut Feeling" about the performer.
... There is also an extra point awarded given by the audience through their applause after a comedian's performance.
If the audience gives a ten-count of enthusiastic applause,
the extra point is awarded.

Prize money:
Facebook, May 1, 2018:
"There is a $15,000 prize pool shared by those performers
who advance through to the Semi-Finals and Finals,
with $5,000 of that prize pool going to the winner."
