Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Need a laugh? If so, you might want to head to the Riviera Comedy Club this weekend.

The Riviera Comedy Club has been looking for its next comic headliner. They received 226 submissions from across the country and held four semifinal competitions.

This Saturday night, the four winners from those semifinals will take the stage in a winner-takes-all showdown.

The show is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. The grand prize winner will be rewarded with a one-week headlining gig at the Riviera.

The final four contestants are Mike Merrill from Panorama City, Calif.; Matthew Broome from Scottsdale, Ariz.; Jared Stern from Washington, D.C.; and Maria Walsh from Long Island, N.Y.

The final competition is free and open to the public.
