A Laugh and a Lil’ Favor For a Friend

(“Use your blog for good, grasshopper, not evil.”)

I don’t often do this, but here goes. A friend of mine — who is, by the way, a writer, and one who does stand up comedy — is in a comedy competition in L.A. He’s a USC student (like my son), and he’s hilarious and talented. We can help him win this thing by voting online… here’s how.

Go to the link below. You will see a video window. Beneath the video window are six smaller images, each labeled with the name of one of the contestants. Click on JOSH FRIEDMAN (middle left; this is important, if you don’t click on him your vote will go somewhere else, to whoever is appearing in the video window… just select Josh and his video will pop up), and wait until his video opens in the bigger window above. Then, watch and laugh. You can VOTE for him at any time by hitting the button to the right (selecting his video among the six ISN’T the vote, hitting the button to the right after the video starts IS the vote).

This kid is amazing and really wants this. When you see the routine, you’ll see that he deserves it, too. Thanks for helping. Storyfix readers are the best. Here’s that link:

  1. Voted.

    I did watch all six and Josh was the funniest. The video that started first had the most votes. I wonder how many click the vote button accidentally.

    Good luck to him.

  2. Voted 😉

    good tip – to get more votes just put it on http://hellbuzz.com and thats all

    You can vote once a day, so set this up in your Favorites, people 🙂

  5. Watched, voted and forwarded to family with instructions to vote for Josh.

  6. That kid is funny! Putting the following Tweet out from @LakeLopez: Favor, friends – can you give this funny writer-kid a vote? comic: Josh Friedman http://tinyurl.com/4zxz67j

  7. Glad to vote, but watched the video anyway. Ended in classic story structure form with the crack-back on UCLA.

    Now for the USC challenge (you’ve probably heard of this): USC has a Renaissance Scholar program. http://www.usc.edu/programs/ugprograms/renaissance/become.shtml

    $10K graduation prize for the top of the top. No joke.

    What I read, hear never leaves me alone. I re-ran the bits. Josh is a comedian. He gets it.

  9. Hey Storyfix Readers,
