"Funniest Comic in Texas 2010" starts tonight!

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.

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!
