Want to know who's in the running to be named New York's Funniest Stand-Up in 2010? It's a lot simpler to find out this year, as Carolines did away with the stand-by line and asked comedians to file online applications in advance. After reviewing more than 150 entrants, they've narrowed the list down to these 53, who will audition this Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Only about 30 will make it to live semifinal rounds on Oct. 27 at Carolines, with a winner determined in the finals on Nov. 2, also at Carolines. Past winners include Myq Kaplan, Julian McCullough and Wil Sylvince.
Good luck, everybody!
