Ummm... So... yeah... I am nominated for a couple of awards by RooftopComedy.com. One is a nomination for a viewer's choice award for my bit about weed saving the economy (I'll be harassing you to vote for this starting May 19.) and the other nomination is for... "The Roofie: Nominated by Rooftop staff and selected by t...he academy. The Roofie award goes to the one comedian who stands out as an innovative performer and writer, with a unique voice and an overwhelming commitment to the stand-up comedy stage."
Cool! I'm up against some real competition, and I wasn't expecting or even looking for --- or even had this on my radar --- so in my case, it TRULY IS an honor just to be nominated. No Bullshit.
Here's the link to the post, but I also excerpted my two categories below...
2010 ASPEN COMEDY FESTIVAL AWARDS
The annual Rooftop Comedy Awards are here. Each year, Rooftop Comedy recognizes comedians and those working in the field of online comedy who are doing exciting, innovative and, yes, hilarious things.
The nominees are determined by our network of thousands of comics, our comedy-obsessed staff and our stellar partner clubs across the country. Winners are ultimately decided by the most appropriate audience per award including our website visitors, live audiences and performing comics at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, Twitter followers, partner clubs, and, well, us.
Award winners are announced live at the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival and online here the week of June 14. Aside from basking in the glory of victory, all winners also receive some pretty sweet trophies.
