Never mind any gripes or complaints you may or may not have about the details of the contest, I recommend entering and doing your absolute best to win. We will have special HFP blocks at the Houston Comedy Union open mic, for contestants to practice their set and get tips from former winners and judges.

  1. As a former winner of the contest I do advise anyone who hasn’t won the contest to enter. At the very least you can do a set at a real club. The brotherhood of the HFP (Houston’s Funniest Person) is always looking for new members. Will it change your life? Probably not. Can it help you gain confidence? Yes. Can it crush dreams? I hope so! I’m not saying you’ll get on TV like former winners John Wessling, Billy D Washington and myself, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham’s Bob Biggerstaff. Enter the contest and have fun!
