The Andy Kaufman Award, an annual prize given out to young comedians who perform in the spirit of the legendary late comedian, is taking submissions for the 2013 award now. Founded in 2004 by Kaufman's family, the Andy Kaufman Award has, in the past, gone to comedians like Kristen Schaal, Reggie Watts, and Brent Weinbach, when they were earlier on in their careers. Head on over to the official website to find out how to submit your video. The ceremony is typically held in November, when finalists perform on stage and one is selected to receive the award.
