The 2011 Super Bowl of NEW JOKES!



On Super Bowl Sunday, after the game, the Houston Comedy Union will have a 15 comic throwdown for a $200 winner-take-all cash prize…the catch is, you can only use jokes written AFTER November 22nd 2010.

So get a clean sheet of paper out, and start writing some new material for the HCU 2011 Super Bowl of NEW JOKES!

Sets will be AT LEAST 4 minutes long, no longer than 6:59, ALL JOKES must be brand new. New tags to old bits are not eligible. ANY use of old material will get you DQ’d!!

get out the ole set lists!

The honor system is in place here, the idea being this will be a great chance to create new material for our old, tired & busted acts. If this goes well, and that is ENTIRELY up to the rank and file of the HCU, I can see this becoming a yearly tradition that helps break our collective logjams of creativity.

Certain local pros will be invited, depending on how many accept the challenge, that will determine how many amateur or at-large OR STAND-BY spots are available that night. There will be no more than 15 contestants the night of the Super Bowl.

More details will be released soon, but don’t worry about that now, worry about writing new jokes!
