**I AM OFFICIALLY OUT OF THE COMPETITION*** Thank you for your efforts!

**VOTING DATE HAS CHANGED – AGAIN – TO NOVEMBER 8**

I NEED your help!

Yes, YOU!

Here’s the deal – I posted a video of my stand-up at Daily Motion for the chance to win a trip to the Montreux comedy festival in December.

All I need is – well – your support.

Follow the link below to the participating videos page – you’ll need to scroll through those – you should find me on page 18 – watch the video and vote for me .

THAT’S IT! Watch, vote and send me to Montreux. Could anything be more simple?

Oh – I almost forgot, I would also greatly appreciate it if you tell everyone you know about the contest and have them vote and then ask them to tell everyone they know…and so on.

Now, the people running the contest are only paying for my airfare so I CANNOT offer to take a random person with me – not to mention TL&T would be going if they were BUT I will do this…

If you follow the link, vote and forward the link to your friends and families – let me know by leaving a comment below and I will choose one or two of you and bring you back something AWESOME!

So – do we have a deal? Will you help send me around the world? The link is below…

***The changed the start date for voting to Wednesday November 6th – PLEASE check back on the link then.

Vote early – Vote often!

    went to vote but can’t until the 6th! will do then, but try to remind us so we don’t forget šŸ™‚

  2. Maryanne says:

    No royale with cheese for you! Good stuff Mick. Can’t vote yet.

  3. Rocky says:

    Not everyone’s video is going to make it to the first voting round. The jury selects twenty people from all entrants first. Then the voting begins. Then the top ten videos go back to the jury and they select five.

      Rocky,
      Thanks – I had not picked up on that. According to the site the voting should start today – just looked and it still seems to not be happening. Bizarre. thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Just wanted you to know – I went to vote on Wednesday – not open yet. Wasn’t able to return until today (my son got married this past Saturday!!). Went over today, and found that the *jury* had already picked 20 videos.

    Whoever these people are, they are insane. They did NOT pick my personal favorite, Mick Holt.

    I plan to boycott the Montreux Comedy Festival.

    ‘Nuff said.

    One other thing:

    Headlines for tonight.

    Pigs Fly.

    Hell Freezes Over.

    The BUCS Win #1!!

  6. Sharon says:

    Just wanted you to know I noticed…

    The Bucs are on a winning streak!

    • mickholt says:

      When you get accustomed to so much losing – a two game streak may as well be the Super Bowl. Your Bronco’s are looking good – but then it’s the regular season – Peyton will choke at just the “right” time šŸ™‚ OF course – your team will at least be IN the playoffs.

      • Sharon says:

        O-U-C-H.

        I’m just hoping that they beat the Patriots next week. I’m not a Tom Brady/Belichick fan (so, of course, I really enjoyed MNF last night). Although, good ol’ Bill does rock a hoodie like no one else…

      • mickholt says:

        You’re right he’s got the hoodie thing down.

  7. Sharon says:

    #3! Go, Tampa Bay!

    And, if you have a kind bone in your body at all, you will NOT discuss last night’s fiasco. It’s not polite to poke fun at the mourning.

    It was NOT a good sports weekend in my house. The LA Kings lost a tough one on Thursday, the UCLA Bruins made me cry, and…well…Peyton and I aren’t speaking right now.

    Sigh…sports. Gotta love ’em, gotta hate ’em.

  8. Sharon says:

    And yes, I am NOT mentioning the subsequent OT loss for the Kings on Saturday. I was too busy watching the Bruins self-destruct.

    Be nice.
