As you can see here, I, along with four very deserving comics, have been nominated for the title of “Boston’s Best Comedian” by the Boston Phoenix Readers Poll.  However, all the other nominees have a) more comedy work and/or b) better-paying day jobs than I do – so I can use the publicity bump the most, which makes your decision about who to vote for a little easier.  Here’s how to do it:

1.    Click this link: http://thephoenix.com/theBest/Boston/vote/Comedian/
2.    Click the radio button (I think that’s what they’re called – why?) next to my name.
3.    Hit “submit.”
4.    Hit “skip to finish.”
5.    Enter your name and e-mail (I know, I know, but it says this is a “required step,” so here’s the bargain: if I win, I’ll bring you to so many VIP rooms and limo parties that it’ll be worth the inbox clutter)
6.    Hit “submit.”  Done.

Let’s Slumdog this mofo!
