ECNY Awards nominees

I used to be a rabid comedygoer. Now I'm more of an interested observer, but still, congratulations to all the nominees! Go to ECNY for the fancy version, with links. I heart many performers here, especially Adira Amram, Claudia Cogan, Giulia Rozzi and Sara Benincasa.

Extra special shoutouts from me to The Sarah Palin Vlogs, The Rejection Show and The Comics Comic.

The ECNY Awards are produced by Alex Goldberg (Fearsome), Jon Friedman (The Rejection Show), Carol Hartsell (Drink at Work), Nate Sloan (The Apiary), and Alexander Zalben (Elephant Larry).
