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.
