64 Comedians for a Cause: BackFat Variety’s Annual Bracket-Style One Liner Joke Contest

March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


BackFat Variety’s March Madness comedy show is back in 2017! 64 comedians compete in this fast-paced, bracket-style, one-liner joke contest to determine The Best Joke Writer in Brooklyn and raise money for PLANNED PARENTHOOD. Comedians are inserted randomly into a March Madness bracket and audience applause determines who advances.

This is the second annual BackFat March Madness fundraiser, and we go from 64 comics to a winner in 90 minutes. The tie-breaking judge is actor Omar Nieve Capra and the show is hosted by Emily Winter of TV Land and Fusion TV.

There will also be a guest set from last year’s winner, someecards writer Missy Baker, and the Brooklyn band The Tracys will play after the show. 100% of donations go directly to PLANNED PARENTHOOD. Suggested donation is $10 at the door.

In 2016, we raised $1K for an animal shelter at this event! Spread the word and let’s raise even more for PLANNED PARENTHOOD when they need it most!
