Head-to-head match-ups begin at one to two minutes a piece and increase in length as comedians advance until one champion remains.

"It's anybody's game," said event founder and organizer Josh Filipowski. "Pros and amateurs alike may have a solid start in the first rounds, but it's the more seasoned comedians who shine in later rounds. We always crown a worthy champ."
