The Mardi Gras Casino Comedy Challenge 2012 crowns a victor at the end of October after the four remaining finalists—culled from a starting pool of 40—test their standup skills in front of a laugh-hungry audience. In the competition’s finale, the winners of each previous round will take the stage, engaging in a battle for the most chuckles that will leave but one victor. Afterward, Long Island native and professional jokester Pete Correale will headline the evening, tickling ribs with sets that evince wide-eyed disbelief at such absurdities as the price of the zoo and smilingly jaundiced observations about married life. The winner of the competition runs a chortle-filled victory lap, opening for Caroline Rhea in November. A veteran of the standup circuit, Rhea's sets delve into personal stories, revealing her infectious delight at low-level misanthropy and surreal situations brought on by anxiety-addled musings.
