AMERICA’S FUNNIEST COLLEGE STUDENT ANNOUNCED

Today marks the close of the 3rd Annual RooftopComedy.com National College Comedy Competition (NCCC) presented by TBS, with the official crowning of Calvin Cole from University of Florida as America’s Funniest College Student. The competition kicked off in January with an on-campus talent search at 32 universities across the country. Comedy Teams then battled their way through a series of live events and online elimination rounds in tournament-style match-ups.

Four teams – Emerson College, the University of Florida, Loyola Marymount University and Xavier University – progressed to the National Semi-Finals, hosted at The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival in Aspen, CO, from June 10-13. Live audiences and online viewers watched each student performance and voted for their favorite MVPs and Comedy Teams. The four chosen MVPs were:

• Daniel Rubinton, Emerson College
• Calvin Cole, University of Florida
• Cody Kopp, Loyola Marymount University
• Reid Faylor, Xavier University

The University of Florida won the prestigious title of “Funniest Comedy Team in America” at the Finals in Aspen, while the four chosen MVPs advanced to a final performance round at the TBS Presents a “Very Funny” Festival: Just for Laughs in Chicago June 15-19. Performances were filmed and hosted on tbs.com for public viewing and voting. Majority votes elected Calvin Cole from University of Florida as America’s Funniest College Student.

“I want to thank Rooftop and TBS; I’ve had a blast throughout the entire competition, and my only regret is that I can’t do it again next year,” remarked Cole upon hearing news of his win. “The other schools brought some real talent to the table, and I wouldn’t be on the winning team or have this awesome title without the unflagging efforts of my teammates, Rudy Mendoza, Tim Keck and Brian Amos or the massive support base we have in our families and friends.”

“TBS sincerely congratulates Calvin and all the student comedians who were part of this competition. They all put in a tremendous amount of effort,” said Dennis Adamovich, Senior Vice President of Brand and Digital Activation/General Manger of Festivals for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “Given our leading position in comedy programming, TBS is proud to be a part of a platform that helps grow and develop America’s future entertainers.”
