Submissions Now Open for the South Jersey Comedy Festival 2013

From the SJCF:

The South Jersey Comedy Festival will be a two day comedy extravaganza featuring over of stand-up comedians and improv comedy troupes from August 16th-17th 2013. Since South Jersey is within a small radius of several metropolitan areas, it is an ideal location to celebrate these forms of live comedy. Each day of the festival will celebrate a different form of live comedy; at the end of each night, we will crown a new winning comedian or improv troupe, which will win the title of “Best Stand-up Comedian/Improv Troupe,” and a CASH PRIZE! Every performer/troupe will be judged silently. The festival will take place at Harper’s Pub in Clementon, NJ ,in the heart of South Jersey.

More information and submission forms for the South Jersey Comedy Festival can be found online.

Reasons You Didn’t Make Vulture’s List Of 50 Comedians You Should and Will Know

by: Doogie Horner

1. Your name is hard to spell (and being Polish didn’t help either).

2. Congratulations, you’re number 51!

3. The editors at Vulture can’t remember whether or not you’re dead, and they don’t feel like googling it.

4. Maybe people refuse to take you seriously because you never stop clowning around?

5. Too edgy!

6. Not edgy enough.

7. You only perform in North Korea.

8. People should know you, but won’t.

9. People shouldn’t know you, but will.

10. You’re always eating a sandwich on stage and it makes it hard to understand you sometimes.

11. Your tenure as 42nd President of the United States overshadows your comedy career.

12. Crooked candy corn teeth

13. You’re not funny, so just knock it off.

14. Politics! (see reason 11)

Doogie Horner is a comedian, author, and graphic designer. He is a suppurating wound of comedy.
