Step Up to the Mic: Calling All Funny Journos

The call is out for funny journalists willing to get on stage.

Comedia dell Media III is set for April 1 at the National Press Club.

So far, NJ‘s Matt Cooper and Bloomberg TV’s Lizzie O’Leary have signed up. Cooper’s a repeat comedian who is at ease with the stage. “Lacking the ability to raise journalists from the dead, Commedia dell Media III is on the hunt for comedic talent in DC’s media community,” says a release from event organizer and freelancer Christina Davidson.

The event raises money for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and The Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library.

The winner? He or she takes home a crown and a one-day supply of beer provided by sponsors at Flying Dog Brewery. “To be specific, I guess a six-pack,” said Davidson.

Interested budding comics can contact Davidson at Christina@journopalooza.com by Feb. 25.
