March Madness pick ’em: 12 Angry Mascots vs. (5) Nick Swardson

Another three weekends of March Madness have begun anew, as the NCAA men's and women's basketball tourneys are underway (alongside the NIT and the CBI, which I'm still adjusting to acknowledge as an actual thing). Comedians have gotten into the act again, too.

Nick Swardson, who has a sketch show in the works for Comedy Central, starred in a series of short videos for VitaminWater, offering tips on surviving March Madness, with co-stars such as Katrina Bowden (hot young actress you still don't really know anything about from 30 Rock) and Kevin Farley (who, well, brother of late Chris Farley). Let's roll two of these.

Meanwhile, NYC-based sports-based comedy-based troupe 12 Angry Mascots produced their own version of the mind games that take over offices when co-workers fill out their brackets. Their next live show is March 28 at Comix. Roll it.
