After Claiming His Shorty Award, SoCal Comedian Discovers It Was Actually a Tie*

FishbowlLA hates to be the bearer of bad news. Then again, the information we passed on earlier today to local stand-up Matt Walker fits perfectly with his blogged sentiments about traveling to New York to accept on Monday the Shorty Award for Best Comedian:

In the same category as me were Jim Norton, one of the best comedians working today, and Smosh, the Sacramento based couple that make funny videos that have many orders of magnitude greater views than anything I’ve ever done online… If the award was for the best comedian that uses Twitter of this crop of finalists, then there is a clear winner, and that’s Norton. But if the award is for the comedian that uses Twitter the best of these finalists (and that’s how I believe the award is intended to be viewed), then yeah, I guess I did deserve to win.

Turns out Norton was also a winner, just not at the big NYC ceremony co-hosted by The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones. When we got in touch with Walker to ask why he was listed on the Shorty Awards website as a co-winner with Norton, it was the first he’d heard about it.
