Results of Preliminary Night 3 of 2012 Houston’s Funniest Person

For the first time EVER, The Houston’s Funniest Person contest took place at The Comedy Showcase. Prelim 3 was a great show for a fun crowd, in front of some very tough judges.

I’d like to extend a very special thanks to Danny Martinez for welcoming the HFP into his club and for being so supportive of the contestants. It felt really good to see the Showcase full of young Houston comics.
