In order to enter, contestants need to record at least one-minute of their funniest original material and upload that video to the dedicated area at (to ensure the video gets placed into the right location, be certain to select “Funny People” in the drop-down category selector).

All video entries need to be uploaded by Tuesday, December 8, 2009, before midnight (PT).
