MARCH COMEDY MADNESS 2015 more than a month of madnessssss
In honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, 100+ comedians will go one-on-one in the 9th 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!

How does one advance?

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 wins?
Nope. If someone has 10 friends in an audience of 100, 90% of the audience is still up for grabs. Be funny. Promote the show. And may the funniest advance.
Do comedians need to pay?
The submission fee is $10.
