We are on a mission to show the world that despite popular belief, accountants are funny too. The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant is a stand-up comedy show competition that was created to provide a platform to showcase the less celebrated comedic talents of our accountant friends and colleagues. Since 2006, Accountants One has proved that accountants are more than just number crunchers.

Proceeds from The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant benefit Junior Achievement of Georgia, an organization with a mission to prepare and inspire young people to succeed in a global economy. To date, the event has raised nearly half a million dollars through our funny accountants.

The 2019 show sold out with over 900 people in attendance and due to its remarkable popularity, the 2022 show will be bigger and better than ever. For the first time ever, the show will take place at the Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre at the Battery! The 16th Annual Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant is officially BACK and ready to bring the laughs!
