"Who Got Jokes?" Comedy Competition Featuring Michael O'Connell

I'll be competing in the "Who Got Jokes?" comedy competition this Thursday, October 14th, at Laughs Unlimited in Old Sacramento.  The show begins at 10:30 PM and ticket cost is $5.00.

This morning was the warm-up for that contest when I appeared and performed on Channel 31's Good Day Sacramento Show along with fellow contestants Anthony Zimmer and Daunte Burks.  We had a great time hanging out at the studio and performing 2-minute sets for the anchors and for the home audience to vote on.  Video clips of our sets went up on the GDS web site and viewers cast their votes, and in the end, Anthony Zimmer came out victorious (I pulled second).

Thursday night is the real event, where a group of us will be competing both for a cash prize and for a paid hosting job and Laughs Unlimited.  The complete contestant list is not available, but I know that in addition to the three of us, Willie Mac and Queenie TT will both be hitting the stage.  It should be a fantastic time.

So if you're up for a little late night competitive comedy (where your vote by applause decides the winner!), head on down to Old Sacramento and join us Thursday night!  Hope to see you there!
