Results of Final WILDCARD, Finalists of 2012 Houston’s Funniest Person Contest

Barrett Goldsmith beat Justin Thompson in regulation tonight to advance into the 8th spot of the Finals of the #2012HFP

Justin Thompson had a great run through the contest, and deserves a ton of recognition for, if nothing else, the HUNDREDS OF MILES he drove for all the nights as he performed throughout the contest.

In years past, Justin was ineligible to compete in the HFP, as he lives in Beaumont Texas. This year, he has performed and competed very admirably, representing those from the newly expanded Greater Houston Region who were able to compete this year, for the first time ever in the #2012HFP.

I was one of these guys myself, getting into Houston comedy from Victoria originally, and I’m proud of the hard work and heart Justin displayed in the #2012HFP.

Here are your 8 finalists of the 2012 Houston’s Funniest Person contest.
