The Friars Club Improv + Sketch Competition (NYC All Up In It)

by The Comedy Nerds on June 1, 2011

The Friars Club announced the ten finalist and alternates for their Improv and Sketch Competition and NYC comedy totally dominated the selections.  Take a look at the final groups below, then go watch them fight each other to the comedy death June 24th & 25th at the UCB theatre.  The winner brings home $5,000 to make a video appearing in the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival in October.  Think of all the wigs and fake mustaches they could buy with that kind of money.  The ridiculous hair possibilities are limitless.
