Join #Borobash, Time Out New York's second annual Twitter joke competition
Calling comics, writers and funny Twitter characters to bash the five boroughs of NYC and win prizes
Welcome to the second year of Borobash, Time Out New York's Twitter joke competition! Mocking the five boroughs of New York City was so much fun last year, we want to do it again. And this year, the prizes are not just a grab bag of shit from the Comedy editor's desk.
Tweet your jokes about the people, places and things of NYC, be funny and win a pair of tickets to one of the big shows at the New York Comedy Festival, happening from 11/6–11/10, as well as a Bag of Shit from the Comedy Editor's Desk and bragging rights that tell other funny people you are the cleverest metro-minded joke teller in all the land.
Here's how it works: Every day during the week of October 21–25, tweet a joke about the appropriate borough with the hashtag #borobash. Here are the dates with their corresponding boroughs:
Oct 21: The Bronx
Oct 22: Queens
Oct 23: Staten Island
Oct 24: Manhattan
Oct 25: Brooklyn
There will be a winner for each day. Be the best basher of a borough and we'll print your name, your joke and your Twitter handle in our fall Comedy issue. You'll also win a pair of tickets to one of five NYCF shows (including Bill Burr, Jim Jefferies, Larry David, Wanda Sykes and one more show TBD) and the aforementioned Bag of Shit from the Comedy Editor's Desk.
