Vote early! Vote Often!

Update: Steve will be doing his act in Atlanta while Conclave is on He has arranged for special SigEp pricing for the 8:00 pm Friday show (use code SIGEP1901 when you order tickets) and $5 per ticket will go to the Education Foundation. Get more info and order tickets.

We got this plea for help from Steve Hofstetter, the resident SigEp Comic, and are passing it along with a hearty recommendation. I got a chance to see his act in Houston afew months ago and really enjoyed it. Now he is in the finals of a "Last Comic Standing" type competition and needs a little help to take over first place (currently he is #2) and win the whole deal.

Fellow SigEps, I could use a bit of support if you've got two minutes.

For the last three months, I've been fighting my way through Famecast, a contest with 150 comedians where the winner ends up with a bunch of shows and $10K. (I can hear my student loans salivating already). Anyway, I'm now one of the final five, which is an honor in and of itself. But whoever wins this round wins the whole darn thing.

It takes less than two minutes to vote, and it would mean a ton if you did. And of course, if you have any reach - be it through media or the web or just a bunch of friends, I could really use any help possible to spread the word.

To vote, go to http://www.picksteve.com and just follow the instructions from there.

(Oh, and if you have a hotmail address, you may have trouble because their SPAM filter is too sensitive. But give it a shot anyway).

Thank you so much for your time, and see you in Atlanta!

Fraternally,
-Steve Hofstetter

You can go to the voting site and watch the live performance he did in Austin TX for the Finals. The competition ends in just a few days so hurry up and help him out before it is too late!

Remember - Vote early! Vote Often!
