Greg Kelly Fails to Win New York’s Funniest Reporter

Newly minted lead WNYW anchorman Greg Kelly competed for the title of New York’s Funniest Reporter. Despite his ad-libbing qualities at the anchor desk, Kelly did not win the charity event held last night at Comic Strip Live.

It was Fox News’ Clayton Morris who grabbed the top prize in the 7th annual event. He edged In Touch Weekly‘s Marianne Garvey. Kelly settled for third place.

“We offer many congratulations, praise, and thanks not only to Clayton Morris but, to all participants in the show who were brave enough to go on stage and help out a great cause,” co-producers Mark Goldman and Ryan McCormick said.

The proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society of New York.

WNYW’s Greg Kelly Competing for Funniest New York Reporter

His ad-libbing style has been under the microscope since assuming the lead anchor role at WNYW/Channel 5. While Greg Kelly has not been wildly praised since become evening anchor in July,  his delivery might prove to be successful in one venue.

Kelly joins five others who will compete for the title of New York’s Funniest Reporter. You can decide if a high profile news presence should be doing stand-up for the prize. But this much is known, Kelly becomes the first night time anchor to be involved in the competition, now in its seventh year.

Others vying for the title include Dr. Manny Alvarez, the Fox News medical correspondent and frequent WNYW contributor, and Clayton Morris, co-host of Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends Weekend.

The Fox triumvirate face Marianne Garvey, a former New York Post reporter and writer. She is currently news editor at In Touch Weekly magazine, and Michelle Steele, an ESPN anchor/reporter. Also competing is Lauren Lyster, an anchor and reporter at Russia Today.

Each reporter performs five minutes of stand-up comedy and at the end of the show, a winner is declared. The participants are offered the help of a professional comedy mentor.

Comic Strip Live hosts the event on Thursday, September 27 at 8:00 p.m.
