After taking a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant is once again returning to the stage. 

Due to the show’s overwhelming popularity in previous years, the 2022 show is set to be the biggest show in history.  The 2022 show is set for Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta, Georgia, and will be sponsored by Accountants One and the Atlanta Business Chronicle. 

“The Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant was such a fun experience, benefiting an amazing cause. The event and the entire process leading up to it was a blast,” said Brad Manning, Senior Associate at Grant Thornton and 2019 Funniest Accountant Grand Prize Winner. 

Another Big 4 Senior Manager gave glowing feedback regarding the event, “I’ve been coming to the show for years and wouldn’t miss it – a guaranteed good time!”

The show benefits Junior Achievement of Georgia, a nonprofit whose mission is to prepare and inspire young people to succeed in a global economy. 

Through Accountants One’s nonprofit arm, Stand-Up for Leadership, there has been nearly $500k raised to support the work of Junior Achievement of Georgia. By supporting Junior Achievement, four-year graduation rates have increased to 92% in 2019 as opposed to 62% in 2015. 

Past sponsors of the event include Mercedez-Benz USA, Moore Colson CPAs and Advisors, Graphic Packaging, Genuine Parts, Chick-fil-A, Georgia Power, PwC, Grant Thornton, EY, Deloitte, GreenSky, Cox, HonorBuilt, Consume Media, Nichols Cauley & Associates, Sage, Beech Valley, Altium Packaging, Purchasing Power, and more.
