ABOUT MARCH COMEDY MADNESS:
In honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, 64 comedians will go one-on-one in the 6th annual March Comedy Madness; a single elimination comedy competition.
In the first round, two comedians will perform their best minute of standup head-to-head and then the audience, by applause, will decide the winner. As the field is narrowed down, the sets will get longer and more hilarious, until the final two comics each perform 10 minute sets to crown the 2012 March Comedy Madness Champion!
"The Madness has proven fast-paced, loose and fun for comedians and audience alike. It’s not a contest - it’s Madness" -LA Examiner
"A rapid-fire competition modeled after the NCAA tourney" -New York Post
"Comedians walked on stage and delivered their best material." -The New York Times
"In first round, contestants have one minute to slam their comedy hammer down." -Time Out New York
"Filipowski brings respectability back to comedy competitions." -STAGE TIME Magazine
The shows will be hosted and refereed by co-creators/producers Bryan Kennedy in NY and Josh Filipowski, Like2laugh.com founder, in LA.
