Silver Winner Dan Hendricken

Bronze Winner Travis Lindsay

“I’m extremely grateful to the folks who voted for me but equally worried about how messed up they must be to think so highly of me.” Lindsay Dauphinee has a love/hate relationship with stand-up, which sounds about right based on every comedian ever. “I love performing, but I also really enjoy writing and producing, and I’d love to do something in the city that hasn’t been done before,” she says. “For me, the toughest part about stand-up is you have an audience of people watching you fail on a pretty regular basis. But the validation of a laughing audience is the best feeling in the world, so it balances out.”
