Field of 64 Comedians - Championship Round

 Well here we are at the championship round. A couple of upsets in the last round with the 3 seeds beating up on their 2 seed opponents. Here is a link to the results of the last round

Once again, I want to make sure everyone understands the rules, I made a slight amendment this week.

Recap of the rules.

1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. Please use BOLD to indicate who you are voting for, or just strikethough the one you don't want to vote for (glad they fixed that), but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Here is the Championship Matchup.

#3 Robin Williams

VS.

#3 Bill Cosby

Polls will be open for two weeks, closing on April 16.

Field of 64 Comedians - Final Four

 Another Field of 64 is getting close to completion, unless I continue to be lax in tallying the votes. In that case, this thing could go on for another two months.

The results of the last round are below, feel free to use the link to read the comments by the voters. My comments are included here.

#2 Rodney Dangerfield 27 #6 Bob Hope 6 I would have chose Rodney over Bob Hope in this matchup, and it looks like most of you agreed with me.

#1 George Carlin 13 #3 Bill Cosby 20 This was a hard choice, but I would have chosen Bill if a tiebreaker was needed. I expected a closer finish in this matchup.

#2 Eddie Murphy 29 #6 Redd Foxx 4 No surprise, Eddie should definitely advance over Redd, and it looks like everyone overwhelmingly agreed.

#1 Richard Pryor 9 #3 Robin Williams 24 Another tough matchup, I expected a close race, but Robin obliterated Richard.

Once again, I want to make sure everyone understands the rules, I made a slight amendment this week.

Recap of the rules.

1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.

Onto the new Matchups, looks like it is the 2's vs. the 3's.

#2 Rodney Dangerfield #3 Bill Cosby


#2 Eddie Murphy #3 Robin Williams

 Edit info:

The polls will be open until March 25, that should give everyone enough time to vote. And of course, I probably will get around to tallying them sometime in April.

Field of 64 - Comedians. Round 2

Sorry, I am a little late tallying the votes, I will just adjust the schedule going forward accordingly. I will keep the voting open until next Tuesday morning to give everyone time to find this.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the last round, I had 45 votes, which I think is a record for one of these things. Tallying all those matchups can be a pain, but it gets easier for me this week. If you haven't voted before, no problem, all votes are welcomed, provided they follow the rules, see below.

Before we get to the results, I just wanted to reiterate the rules for this game.

A few rules that I would ask everyone to follow so that I am not pulling my hair out while running this thing.
1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. You can bold your selection, or cross out the one you don't like, but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Ok, now for the results of the last round, and my comments on the matchups.

#1 Woody Allen 31 #16 Elaine Boosler 14 - I would have picked Boosler
#2 Rodney Dangerfield 41 #15 David Letterman 4 - No brainer, the right guy won.
#3 Bob Newhart 30 #14 Flip Wilson 15 - This one is tough, but Newhart is the winner.
#4 Jonathan Winters 25 #13 Adam Sandler 20 - Winters was the right choice
#5 Buddy Hackett 36 #12 Gilbert Gottfried 9 - Hacket
#6 Bob Hope 28 #11 David Chappelle 17 - Thought Bob would have won in a bigger way
#7 Richard Lewis 13 #10 Billy Crystal 32 - Tough choice, but I like Crystal better
#8 Red Skelton 28 #9 Jim Carrey 17 - Skelton

#1 George Carlin 33 #16 Jeff Foxworthy 12 - No brainer, Carlin wins
#2 Chris Rock 35 #15 Andrew Dice Clay 10 - Rock wins, I never really liked Clay, he was a one trick pony in my opinion
#3 Bill Cosby 39 #14 Tim Allen 6 - The Cos
#4 Don Rickles 34 #13 Damon Wayons 11 - Tough matchup, I would have went with Damon
#5 Roseanne Barr 11 #12 Henny Youngman 34 - Can't stand Rosanne
#6 Albert Brooks 29 #11 Joan Rivers 16 - Brooks, I do like Joan though.
#7 Andy Kaufman 25 #10 Gary Shandling 20
#8 Steven Wright 25 #9 Martin Lawrence 20

#1 Lenny Bruce 37 #16 Dom Irrera 8 - I would have went with Dom, the guy is hilarious, needs more air time
#2 Eddie Murphy 38 #15 Jackie Mason 7 - Definitely Eddie
#3 Jerry Seinfeld 23 #14 Jackie Gleason 22 - I would have voted Gleason
#4 Sam Kinison 26 #13 Denis Leary 19 - Tough choice, I love them both, but Kinison I guess
#5 Carol Burnett 31 #12 Ray Romano 14 - Burnett
#6 Redd Foxx 35 #11 Jon Stewart 10 - Foxx, I'm not a big Stewart fan
#7 Jack Benny 37 #10 David Brenner 8 - Jack wins easily
#8 Phyllis Diller 27 #9 Ellen DeGeneres 18 - Both are funny, but Diller has been doing it longer

#1 Richard Pryor 29 #16 Mel Brooks 16 - Pryor, not an easy choice
#2 Steve Martin 35 #15 Lewis Black 10 - I like Lewis Black, but Steve is funny in his own right
#3 Robin Williams 41 #14 Richard Belzer 4 - Robin wins easily
#4 Bill Hicks 27 #13 Richard Jeni 18 - Hicks
#5 Johnny Carson 41# #12 Jay Leno 4 - Carson, Leno pales in comparison
#6 Mort Sahl 4 #11 George Burns 41 - Don't know how George wasn't a higher seed, bad lists I guess
#7 Milton Berle 37 #10 Bill Maher 8 - Uncle Miltie wins easily
#8 Dennis Miller 27 #9 Robert Klein 18 - Can't stand Dennis Miller, Klein wins by default.

Field of 64 - Comedians. Round 1

Well the movie blog-off was a big success, congrats to Casablanca which is the best movie of all-time in the opinion of the cbssportsline comunity. Here is a link to the final round
http://www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs
/entry/5827413/12252170

Since that blog-off is over, time to start a new one. This idea came from mikeyfan1599, and includes a couple of people who aren't really comedians, but are very funny. 

A few rules that I would ask everyone to follow so that I am not pulling my hair out while running this thing.
1. Vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either, or can't decide who you like better, flip a coin. When counting votes for 32 matchups, it is easier to know I tallied everything correctly if all matchups have the same number of votes.
2. You can bold your selection, or cross out the one you don't like, but keep your response in a list form, including the areas (east, west, etc.) Again, this just makes it easier for me to count up the votes
3. Not really a rule, but feel free to make comments on the matchups if you like. It makes for interesting reading.

Ok, so without further ado, here is the list. Voting will be onpen until Friday Morning January 9th to give sufficient time for people to find the blog and vote. After that, each round will last only a week.
