Comedy Central, although it may be the authority on funny, has still not quite settled on what funny is exactly. Humor is a constant mission to find the best new sketch comic, YouTube video, or meme. And in this era of tons of information in your face, it looks as if anyone with a brain can come up with enough clever observations to temporarily classify himself as a standup comedian. So get this: Perform at the Fort Lauderdale Improv this Wednesday and get the chance to land in front of the world via Comedy Central.
The Fort Lauderdale Improv, along with 24 other clubs around the country, is participating in "Up Next: A Certified Club Talent Show." One comic from each club will perform live at the regional semifinals. Then the public votes on a lucky winner, who will be featured on Comedy Central. Those hundreds of people who told you that you aren't funny? Here is your chance to prove them wrong.
Up Next is Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the Fort Lauderdale Improv (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets cost $5 plus a two-drink minimum. This show is for those 21 and over. Call 954-981-5653, or visit ftl.improv.com.
