NerdMelt Showroom is happy to announce that we will be hosting one night of this year’s March Comedy Madness 2014 on March 13th at 7pm, brought to you by Like2Laugh!
In honor of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, 100s and eventually 64 bracketed comedians will go one-on-one in the 8th Annual March Comedy Madness single elimination comedy competition refereed by Josh Filipowski of Like2Laugh.com. 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 2014 March Comedy Madness Champion!
Past winners include: Julian McCullough (Comedy Central Presents), Reese Waters (Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham), Myq Kaplan (NBC’s Last Comic Standing), Sam Morril (Comedy Central’s Comic to Watch), Samba Schutte (NBC’s Fatal Encounters), Adam Yenser (Conan) and Nick Cobb (Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham)!
Ticket prices and times vary and will be available online soon.
March Comedy Madness 2014 submissions are being accepted now through Saturday, February 15th. Here are the details on how you can participate. Spread the word!

How does one advance?
After each pair performs, the audience determines the winner by applause and our trusty decibel meter. Final rounds are determined by ballot 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 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?
If new to Like2Laugh the submission fee is $10 until2/15/14. ($20 until3/1/14) If already registered there is no fee.
What if I cannot make all dates?
You must be available for your prelim show and the Final Four 3/15/14
