Ellie, and Rich … welcome to “Comedy in the Cage.” As you know, this is a no-holds-barred competition, so I’m certain you’ll deliver a pair of short stories that will make us laugh out loud. You’ll be allowed a maximum of 2,ooo words and will have 24 hrs. to complete this challenge. The deadline is 12 pm EDT tomorrow, Sunday, Dec. 18th. Good luck to both of you.
This is a prompt that a fellow writer friend gave me once, and I had a great time with it. I trust you will enjoy working with it, too: What if Jerry Seinfeld married Lady Gaga?
Give us a glimpse at what a “typical” afternoon inside their NYC apartment might look and sound like.
There you go. Take this scenario and blow us away with your comedic best. There can only be one winner, so give us the most outrageously funny stories you can come up with.
Again, best of luck to both combatants. This much-anticipated pair of stories will post Sunday, Dec. 18th, by 1 PM EDT, and will be shown without author attribution to make the voting as unbiased as possible. Readers will be able to vote until 6 PM on Wednesday, December 21st.
Let this ~Comedy Cage Match~ begin.
All the best, AB
Haha! This Is gonna be FUN!
Glad you like the prompt, Ellie. I’m excited to read what you and Rich come up with.
Ellie, just remember to stretch… and always kick at the shins. Wait, that’s horrible advice for a writing battle. I guess, remember to use spell check? Good luck!
As always, Al, you’ve picked two of the best to compete! This is going to be great!
Thank you, Dannie; I agree. I can’t wait to read these stories when they come in.
OMG, this will be epically hilarious! I’m laughing already just thinking about it!
It is pretty outrageous to consider Seinfeld & Lady Gaga in a relationship together. The word “trainwreck” comes to mind. Great to hear from you, Eden.
Bummer, sorry I missed it but considering I try to stay away from both those subjects I don’t think mine would have been very accurate. 🙂
