MARCH COMEDY MADNESS 2014
In honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, 100s and eventually 64 bracketed comedians will go one-on-one in the 8th Annual March Comedy Madness single elimination comedy competition refereed by Josh Filipowski of Like2Laugh.com. In the first round, two comedians perform their best minute of stand-up head-to-head and then the audience, by applause, decides the winner. As the field is narrowed down, the sets get longer and more hilarious, until we crown the 2014 March Comedy Madness Champion!
Past winners include: Julian McCullough (Comedy Central Presents), Reese Waters (Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham), Myq Kaplan (NBC's Last Comic Standing), Sam Morril (Comedy Central’s Comic to Watch), Samba Schutte (NBC’s Fatal Encounters), Adam Yenser (Conan) and Nick Cobb (Comedy Central's Live at Gotham)!
