2012 Rocky Top Comedy Contest

Much thanks to everyone that came out to the Rocky Top Comedy Contest this weekend in Knoxville!!  

This year there were 12 finalists from around the region, and every one of them were at the top of their game.  From Asheville's Art Sturtevant to Nashville's Monty Mitchell, passengers aboard the Riverboat were treated to some of the funniest people that Tennessee has to offer, and I was honored to be among them.  Organizer Matt Ward put together a stellar contest that I look forward to again next year.

The final vote tallies proved Monty Mitchell to be the winner of the Rocky Top trophy as well as a cash prize, with myself and Drew Whitney as the runners up (thanks to the audience, comics, and judges for that, by the way).

Please take the time to check out the local comics and comedy shows in Knoxville.  I assure you, it'll be worth your time!
