One Liner Madness Joke Tournament

The Time Out Critics’ Pick comedy outfit BackFat Variety hosts its 3rd Annual ONE LINER MADNESS tournament on Tuesday, March 13 at Littlefield in Brooklyn.

This fast-paced, raucous contest goes from 64 comedians to a champion in just 90 minutes. It’s a single-elimination, comedy version of March Madness, and participants advance based on audience applause. The show has raised more than $2,400 for charity, and this year all proceeds benefit SHELTER CHIC Animal Rescue (, an organization that’s saved the lives of thousands of animals in NYC.

Buy a ticket NOW to save a pup… and secure a seat before the show sells out.

Finally, the show stars YOU, the audience, who will determine 2018’s Funniest Comedian in Brooklyn.
