Here it is again – the annual competition that brings all the ATX funny to one stage
, at least sequentially, in order to determine who's gonna wear the cape and crown. Oh! Who's gonna be the winnah? Who's gonna be the champeen? First, there's about a month of prelims
, where the chaff is separated from the wheat. Then, the semifinals
, where the wheat is culled until only the best parts remain. And then, the finals
, the ultimate night, where the grains with brains are nothing like corny and they represent, pretty much, the pinnacle of contemporary humor in this town. Make your reservations for that last night
now, while you still can – but check out some of the early action, too: You'll be surprised how funny a bunch of eventual losers can be.
March 31-May 13. $6 and up.
