So, this is pretty cool. I was selected as one of 12 finalist by CMT to compete in their “Next Big Comic” Contest” and it will take place on their website – cmt.com. Is this a ploy to drive traffic to their website and get some new visitors? Maybe it is, but as I have never allowed myself to compete in one of these contest before, I figured this one was a good first time.
You can vote as many times as you want (hint hint) and you can text FUNNY12 to 32709 – as many times as your wireless provider will allow!
I have not partaken in contests that require you to hassle people for votes because I find them annoying. But, they much like a lot of other things in this business, have become a common occurrence. I am looking forward to being a part of it because the other comics they selected are all really good and some of them are friends of mine. So, it is really cool to be included in their company for such a thing.
I apologize in advance if you get tired of my requests for votes, but keep in mind that this contest last 5 weeks if I make it to the end. It will either be me hassling you for over a month or less. Thanks so much if you do take the time to vote for me and help me get successful enough to not sleep on my futon. You are the best!
