Web site Comic Wonder, the National Association of Broadcasters and media consultancy McVay Media have started Radio’s Comic Wonder.
This is a joke-telling contest for radio personalities. In the spirit of the Olympics here is a chance to strut your comedic muscles in humor competition against the best in jocularity. All put on the Web — available to all (including talent scouts).
The organizers say jokes need to be original and are limited to three minutes in length. And it looks as if jokes shouldn’t be too racy or off-color (“winning joke must be radio-friendly”). Topics, however, appear to be unlimited.
According to McVay’s Daniel Anstandig, “We believe that this contest can help some great talent get the attention they deserve.”
The prize is $1,000, a trophy and a trip to the NAB Radio Show in Austin. Entries must be made by August 31.
