Fox News Channel’s Clayton Morris Is New York’s Funniest Reporter

The annual “New York’s Funniest Reporter” stand-up comedy contest (to benefit the Humane Society) was held Thursday night, and the victor’s trophy returned to Fox News.

“Fox & Friends” weekend anchor and FNC tech guru Clayton Morris was the winner, as he noted on his Twitter account:


Morris is the second FNCer to take home the title in the last three years. Lauren Sivan won the title in 2010, while last year’s champ was “Nancy Grace” producer Marlaina Schiavo.

Morris faced some stiff competition last night, with In Touch Weekly’s Marianne Garvey placing second and WNYW’s Greg Kelly placing third. The other participants were Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Manny Alvarez, RT America’s Lauren Lyster and ESPN anchor and correspondent Michele Steele.
