Tournament of Laughs on TBS: Week 3 Matchups

TBS hasn’t been keeping up really up to date on voting from the first two weeks of head-to-head comedy videos for its first-ever Tournament of Laughs competition.

But with barely an hour before broadcast of week three, obviously the comedians had to know if they were submitting new videos. And now the brackets have been updated accordingly. At least half of them, anyhow.

So here’s what we should expect tonight:

  • Jeff Ross vs. Aida Rodriguez (Ross advancing past Beth Stelling; Rodriguez over Moshe Kasher
  • The Sklar Brothers vs. Piff the Magic Dragon (Sklar twins beating out Yamaneika Saunders; Piff over Judah Friedlander)
  • Josh Wolf vs. Gilbert Gottfried (Wolf advancing over Vladimir Caamano; Gottfried over Sarah Tiana)
  • Margaret Cho vs. Michael Rapaport (Cho beating out Ian Edwards; Rapaport over Jessica Kirson)

No word yet on how many votes came in or the results, but when we get them, we’ll let you know! When the episode aired, they revealed nothing about vote totals, but teased new videos from all of the first-round comedians, which suggests they required comedians to keep submitting new videos before letting them know if they were still in the competition.

Here are the videos from these second-rounders…
