Whose Video is Funnier? Help Choose the Final Four in RFT's Standup Throwdown



Last week your votes cut the pool in half, leaving just eight aspiring comedians to fend for themselves as the Elite Eight in the Riverfront Times' Standup Throwdown. Now in Round 2 the comics will put both your eyes and ears to the test. They've prepared short videos for your viewing/hearing pleasure, and once again your votes will split the ballot.

Poll closes at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 27. Vote today!
