I'm not sure how the finalists for the 2009 Andy Kaufman Award coped with having "Tony Clifton" host the event. Talk about a distraction! Blaine Kneece knew how to overcome it all, though — my Internets tell me that he's a New Yorker who originally hails from the Philadelphia area, and had made the finals of the Kaufman Award twice before — and used a taped performance piece to take home the trophy and cash prize. Since it's on video, it's also already on YouTube. How about that? So here goes. It's all part of the New York Comedy Festival. Watch and learn!
