How many comedians does it take to screw in a light bulb? We have no idea! We are a Las Vegas blog, not a mechanical engineer.

We do know how many comedians it takes to win a comedy contest at The Improv, however: Just one. The famed comedy club recently launched a talent search which will culminate at Harrah’s Las Vegas on April 1, 2012 at 9:00 p.m.

The Improv has hosted an online voting competition for the last several months, and six comics will take part in the finals, three are judges’ picks and three won the popular vote: Don Barnhart, Rob Little, Keith Lyle, Karen Morgan, Leslie Ann Thompson and Comic TLC (Tari Lynn Briggs).

Comedy trivia: Approximately one third of all comedians in this competition are bald.

A slew of up-and-coming comedians posted videos of their entry material on the official contest site so fans could pick their favorites. See them here.

The winner of the competition will receive $25,000 worth (that’s a fortune in comedian dollars!) of bookings at The Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas and Harvey’s Lake Tahoe.

Tickets for the Main Event are $27.50 general and $49.45 for so-close-you-can-taste-the-funny VIP seats.

Oh, and the answer’s two: It takes one comedian to screw in the light bulb and the other to act like the other comedian’s jokes aren’t funny. Just keeping it real.
