Andrew Santino Wins The New York Times Comedy Challenge But No Cash

Standup Andrew Santino has just been voted the winner of The New York Times 2nd Annual Comedy Challenge, in which six up-and-comers all perform their best jokes and viewers to select a winner. Santino narrowly beat out Last Comic Standing's Carmen Lynch. It's good news for Andrew Santino, even though there's no official prize – cash or otherwise – because The New York Times hates supporting struggling artists.
