The Improv has sent out it's final version of the "Funniest Comic in Texas 2010" schedule. Several dates have been added since the initial e-mails went out a few weeks ago, and the Houston Improv has also been added to the list of hosting clubs.


Here are the dates and locations, according an e-mail from the Improv today:
February 16 - Addison
February 23 - Addison
February 25 - Houston
March 9 - Addison

Each preliminary round will consist of 12 comics per show - that's over 250 comics so far! Each comic will get 6 minutes of stage time, and winners are determined at the end of the show by audience vote. Two comics from each round will move on to the semi-finals, and one from each round will be selected for a "Wild Card" show. There will be a total of 20 preliminary shows, 8 semi-final shows, 2 ‘wild card' shows, and the finale. That's a lot of comedy. Paul Varghese, this year's host, certainly has his hands full!
 

Audience seating will be limited to the first 250 people per show, so it's a good idea to arrive early. Your Stand-up Comedy Examiner will be covering the semi-finals and the finale, as she doesn't think she has it in her to sit through all 31 shows.
 

Best of luck to all you guys and gals!
