Ed Joseph is an active duty serviceman by day, but by night he makes laughs not war. 

His dual-career as a soldier and stand-up comedian began ten years ago, while he was stationed overseas.

"It was during an open micnight one night when I was living in Guam," Joseph said, "I went with a group of friends, and it kind of grew from there."

Originally from Orlando, Joseph has been in the Destin area for nearly two years now.

Joseph collaborated with Crab Island Cantina owner, Carlos Chafran to create an outlet for area comedians to come and show off their funny side.

"I went to the manager of Crab Island Cantina about seven months ago with the idea of doing an open-mic night. That kind of grew through the connections we both had in L.A."

The two came up with a comedy competition, "So You Think You're Funny?" The 16-week competition will award one winner with round trip tickets for two to Los Angeles to perform at The Comedy Store. Joseph said that the competition has attracted comedians from Panama City, Mobile, Atlanta, and even Detroit.
