Matthew Broussard Wins the 2012 Houston’s Funniest Person Contest

On his exact 1 year anniversary of ever getting on stage to tell jokes, Matthew Broussard pulled off an amazing come-from-behind victory.

He needed to win the night to win the contest, and with the help of a massive contingent of supporters, that’s exactly what he did!
