Or, at least Columbia’s stand-up comedy team thinks so. This week, they are competing in a virtual match-up against stand-up comedians from NYU. It’s North vs. South, Uptown vs. Downtown, Morningside Park vs. Washington Square, and the heat is on. More importantly, the impetus is on YOU to help them claim the National College Comedy Contest title. You can vote every 5 minutes, which as Columbia comedian Bob Vulfov points out, “works in favor of the brooding, indoor NYU students.” Why should you vote? Vulfov responds:
Well, right off the bat: our team boasts two incredibly funny female comedians, whereas NYU’s team boasts four incredibly heavy smokers. Also, the NYU comedians don’t shower because personal hygiene is too “early-2003.”
In any case, if you’re reading this, you’re already procrastinating. You might as well click here, laugh a little, annoy everyone else in the Reference Room, and help Columbia claim some bragging rights while you’re at it.
