Tonight: “Celebs” Compete for DC’s Funniest Crown, Moran & UCP

• Who’s DC’s funniest celeb? FBDC will be on-hand tonight at the DC Improv to find out. “Celebs” include: Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher, US News and World Report‘s Anna Mulrine, Americans for Tax Reform’s Grover Norquist, TWT‘s Richard Miniter, WDCA-TV’s Count Gore De Vol, Rep. Rick Larsen (D-WA), Rep. Jackie Speier, Austan Goolsbee, Chef Geoff and Examiner‘s Mark Tapscott.

We’re bigger fans of some of the judges… they include the GEICO Gecko (seriously?!), Time‘s Karen Tumulty, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin, Chicago Trib‘s Clarence Page, NJ‘s Nora McAlvanah and the Examiner‘s Julie Mason and Gina Sacrapanti, among others.

But it hasn’t been all fun and games for this event… Check out WaPo‘s Amy Argetsinger‘s reporting yesterday. Funniest Celebrity Charitable Fund CEO Richard Siegel responded here.

Follow us on Twitter for updates (of jokes, and more likely, crashes-and-burns).

• ABC’s Terry Moran, Emmy-nominated actress Cheryl Hines, Office of Disability Employment Policy Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez will celebrate United Cerebral Palsy’s “60 Years and Onward” at the Four Seasons. Moran will serve as the master of ceremonies to UCP’s event.
