the all new thurber prize

thurber prize. reloaded.

That's right. We're back and bigger than before. MUCH BIGGER. Join us for an evening of unparalleled fun somewhere between the Mark Twain and Tony Awards. All of the honor for our beloved finalists, with all of the flash of a Broadway show.

During this brand new show written and developed by local Columbus artists, we'll laugh, cry, (and maybe even pee our pants) while celebrating past and present Thurber Prize finalists and winners. One of three top finalists will receive the honor of The 21st Thurber Prize for American Humor and a check for $10,000 big ones!

This is an evening you won't want to miss. Get your tickets and come have a good laugh!
