MARCH COMEDY MADNESS 2019: 64+ Comedians, 1 Champion.
Tipping our hat to the NCAA Basketball Tournament, comedians benefit the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation by going one-on-one in the 13th annual March Comedy Madness; a single elimination comedy competition refereed by show's originator Josh Filipowski. In the first LIVE round, two comedians perform their best 2-3 minutes of stand-up head-to-head and then the audience, by applause, and comedy metric judges decide the winner. As the field is narrowed down, the sets get longer and more hilarious, until the March Comedy Madness Champion is crowned!

WEDNESDAYS at The Point, THURSDAYS at John Harvard's, FRIDAYS at Bent Water Brewery, SATURDAYS at Mooyah in MARCH! and the FiNAL at LAUGH BOSTON!

"Comedians walked on stage and delivered their best material." -The New York Times

:::FAQ:::
-How do I submit?
Email MADNESS at LIKE2LAUGH dot COM or click on the avail form in each event above
-Who is selected? 128 spots are open to those interested.
-Where are the brackets? Coming soon.
-What are the Prizes? Past Prizes include: -CA$H -Submission to SiriusXM Comedy radio -Rasta Bus 4 Hour Charter -That Headshot Guy headshots -Cari Bagdonas headshot package -Mark Manne Photo package -Nathaniel Wood photo session -Greg Dean's Stand-Up Workshop -New British School Acting Class -Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway paid gig -Feature at La Jolla Comedy Store -Spots at top comedy clubs, shows -and more!
-How does one advance? After each pair performs, the audience determines their favorite by applause and our trusty decibel meter, as well comedy metrics are recorded by special refs to together determine winners. The FINALISTS are invited to a very special championship show. Final rounds are determined by decibel meter and industry judges.
-Is there a bringer requirement? Not at all, but it's an amazing event- we hope you'll help promote it.
-So wait... the comedian who brings the most friends or gets the most friends to vote wins? Nope. In the live shows, if someone has 10 friends in an audience of 100, 90% of the audience is still up for grabs. Be funny. Promote the shows. And may the funniest advance.
-Do comedians need to pay? No but each has a goal of raising $100 for Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
-Who's in? TBA, Email interest/ideas/suggestions to madness@like2laugh dot com
-Who's won this thing? Past winners include: Julian McCullough, Reese Waters, Myq Kaplan, Sam Morril, Samba Schutte, Adam Yenser, Nick Cobb, Jay Hollingsworth, Greg Wilson & Harrison Greenbaum & Chris Hurst (2015 Regional Champs), Shannon Leigh & Mike Kramer (2016 Co-Champions), Lance Weiss, & Kyle McNally!
-Who benefits? Proceeds go to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation which gives scientists grants to fund their research to help the 64 million Americans living with mental illness, and the lives of those around them. So everybody benefits really! Check them out: www.bbrfoundation.org
