Battle in the Bay

Great event last night between Stanford and UC Berkeley comics! The Clubhouse was packed with fans as these two schools duked it out on stage. Congrats to all advancing performers!

NYC, whoa!

Fantastic event last night at Comic Strip Live between student comics from NYU and MMC. Both teams brought seasoned performers and an energetic crowd of students and comedy fans alike! The audience got a very special treat when special guest, Judah Friedlander of 30Rock, came on stage for a surprise performance! My face still hurts from laughing so hard.

Congrats to the Starting Lineups from both schools!

Emerson vs. Tufts, tomorrow night!

Just flew into MA and can’t wait for the big matchup between the Tufts and Emerson Comedy Teams. Emerson totally knows how to party and I’m getting a sense that Tufts is bringing some serious contenders. Come out at 8pm for the event at Mottley’s!

FL and PA, here we come!

The Rooftop Comedy team is hitting the road this weekend for our first events in Philly and Tallahassee! After those two, we’ll tackle another 14 events in different cities across the U.S. Stay tuned for team announcements coming soon.

Welcome MSU and Western!

Apparently there’s a whole jackpot of hilarity going on in Michigan. We’re psyched to have found it! We’ve got strong Comedy Teams formed at both schools with a lot of supportive fans backing them up. Their Regional Rival Match this Monday at Connxtions should be reaaaaal good.

Hop on the Bus

Whether the drive is too far or you’ve got no wheels, we realize some of you are SOL when it comes to getting to the Regional Rival Matches. To make things easier, we’re coordinating buses leaving from these campuses: Cornell; UF; Western MI; Penn State; OSU; UVA; and UC Santa Cruz.

Join the team and  RSVP to get on the bus list.

BC, CU Boulder and Emerson teams to be announced!

All three schools had great events on campus last week – drawing a bunch of new talent and a crowd of crazy fans. Keep an eye out for the announcement of their official Comedy Teams coming soon!
