For some who may not know radio DJ Cipha Sounds of New York’s Hot 97 has been building his presence in the stand-up comedy world. After first getting into comedy a couple years ago he has since been popping up at comedy clubs in NYC. For the former Chappelle Show DJ, Dave’s influence might have rubbed off on Cipha and has became prevalent as of lately. Three weeks ago, Cipha made note to his Instagram followers that he has been performing stand-up comedy every night, #ComedyOwnsTheNight. Performing at places such as Carolines Comedy Club, NYC’s The Stand, and other spots he has managed to document of himself hitting the stage at least once every night. So in this world of viral challenges, we like to introduce the same challenge to stand-up’s worldwide. For our ‘Comedy Owns The Night’ challenge we want to see how many consecutive nights a comedian can perform.
The rules are simple. With an account on Instagram, post a picture of you performing stand-up that night, and add #ComedyOwnsTheNight to your post’s caption. Continue with such post every night for as long as you can until the end date of Dec. 15th. When the date ends we will then go back on Instagram to see how many times participating comedians used #ComedyOwnsTheNight. The comedian with the most post, will receive a one on one interview with Comedy Hype, as wells as a custom Bernie Mac T-shirt.
The challenge starts today.
