MARCH COMEDY MADNESS 2016 a nationwide search: 64+ Comedians, 1 Champion.
In honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, comedians go one-on-one in the 10th annual March Comedy Madness; a single elimination comedy competition refereed by show's originator Josh Filipowski. 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 2015 March Comedy Madness Champion!

Friday, April 1, 6:30PM The Broadway Comedy Club, New York The LIVE bracket of 16 goes head-to-head until one finalist remains.
Sunday, April 3, 6:30PM The Broadway Comedy Club, New York Come see very special guests, the FINAL FOUR and CHAMPIONSHIP!

How does one advance?
REGIONAL match-ups take place daily online. Comics are paired head-to-head. Videos are viewed and votes are cast. LIVE match-ups take place Friday, April 1 at the Broadway Comedy Club. After each pair performs, the audience determines the winner by applause and our trusty decibel meter. The FINAL FOUR is invited to a very special championship show Sunday, April 3 at the Broadway Comedy Club. Final rounds are determined by decibel meter and industry judges.
Is there a bringer requirement?
Not at all, but it's an amazing show - 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. 100s of people will be weighing in and voting daily. The match-ups will be promoted on several internet, satellite, television and radio platforms. 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 votes and shows. And may the funniest advance.
Do comedians need to pay?
The submission fee is $10.
