Make sure your cell phone is charged up for this show! After each comic you will be asked to vote on your phone. You will be able to give each comic a score from 1 to 5. Your score will go straight to our computer and total up your score with everyone else in the audience. The audience score will be added to the Judges scores. At the end of each show after we do a little math the Winner will be announced.
