2016 Winner is Todd Justice!
Check them out here.
The title of 2016 Clean Comedy Challenge Winner, $750 Cash, and a ComedyTime.tv taping! Also gets to open the July 23rd Celebrity Show! Other top 3 finalists receive $100 cash.
Each night a "Nightly Audience Favorite" will be crowned. This will be voted on by the audience in attendance and not the judges. (This has no bearing on the final outcome, but it is a fun way to compete on individual nights if a previous night didn't go so well for you!)
July 19th - TBD - Conan Taping in Burbank @ 3:00pm.
July 23rd - TBD - Professional Show by Celebrity Judges (Contestants get free tickets.)
The competition will be awesome each night. Every night (3) you will each get a short set in front of a live paying audiences that will each be judged and critiqued for you. (Length of this set will be determined after all the registrations are in.) Every night an audience vote will be taken to see who the individual night winner is. Each individual night winner will receive recognition and a medal. Then the competition will be narrowed down to the finalists (exact number subject to change) who will each get a chance to come back on stage for a longer set (6-10) additional minutes after the last night has finished.
In addition to the competition, there are open-mic nights every night for each contestant to participate in. These will not be part of the competition but have proven to be some of the most fun things of the Challenge experience. ONLY comics who are registered for the competition (not the auditors), can perform at all the open-mics.
