This contest will be a bit different in that visitors to our website will be picking the best lines. Three cash prices will be awarded to the lines that get the most points — $125 for 1st place; $75 for 2nd place, and $25 for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th place lines will each receive a $10 Round Table gift certificate.
What we are looking for are lines that are not only funny, but share some kind of wisdom. For example, this Bob Hope line: “If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.”
Gene Perret generated a Hint Sheet on Writing a Great Line that may help you write your entries. This is available to you free. Simply request the Hint Sheet by sending an email to us at RTComedy@cwo.com.
So give it some thought and start working on your lines. For full details and rules visit: http://www.comedywritersroom.com/Index_files/Page757.htm
This writing competition is open to everyone, but there is a $5 entry fee (per five jokes). This fee is waived for subscribers of Round Table (an online subscription newsletter for comedy writers and performers).
