There's something satisfying about the clean mathematical progression of the NCAA tournament—start with a power of two and whittle it down to a single champion, one delicious matchup at a time. However your season unfolded up to that point, bring your A game to the tourney or you'll lose your spot to someone hungrier. Of course, you could never apply that kind of rigor and finality to comedy ... or could you?

Having just completed their three-week March Madness improv competition, the evil geniuses at DSI Comedy Theater are thick in the middle of a stand-up throwdown they call Carolina's Funniest Comic. In Round 1 last weekend, 32 comics had five minutes each to convince the audience not to send them packing. Tonight and next Saturday, eight comics will perform 10-minute sets to see who advances to the Final Four on April 24. Who'll be the Michigan State, Butler, West Virginia and Duke of Carolina comedy? Come out and help decide, for $10 at 9:30 p.m. —Marc Maximov
