Charlotte’s funniest bracket battle is back

See fresh new comics — like Jennie J, making her competition debut (while 7 months pregnant) — go against established Queen City comedians — like Mimi Benfield who has opened for big-name acts like Carlos Mencia and Jen Kirkman.

Last year’s winner Kennedy Alexander Robertson will be returning to defend his title.

Audiences will be able to vote for their favorites using their smartphones and will decide who moves forward in the bracket until ultimately one winner is named.

Schedule —

March 14: Round 1B with the second group of 16 comics
