Dan Soder takes NY; Landry wins Boston in dueling 2011 contest finals

In an odd scheduling move, both the New York’s Funniest competition and the Boston Comedy Festival competition held their finals on the same evening last night.

Of course, there could only be two winners, then. No chance of someone sweeping the double this year.

In New York, where the contest is integrated into the weeklong New York Comedy Festival, Dan Soder emerged as the big winner.

And in Boston, it was Atlanta-based Landry who took the top title and cash prize.

Congrats to both men on their victories!
