Mirth Madness 2013: Opening Round – Group 1

Mirth Madness_Banner

Welcome to the opening round of the first ever Mirth Madness! Here we’re pitting some of our favorite movie clowns against each other in a Karate Kid-like tournament without a wuss like Daniel LaRusso and to the death. Now, this is our tournament, made up of the funny people that we at Hard Ticket to Home Video feel were worthy, so that’s why you may find some actors are repeated (e.g., Chevy Chase as both Clark W. Griswold AND Fletch!) or some omitted entirely (e.g., Pauly Shore’s character in In the Army Now). So get comfortable on the edge of your seat and vote, VOTE, VOTE! (voting for this round ends July 17 with winners announced that very afternoon!)

You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” Quote: “A drug person can learn to cope with things like seeing their dead grandmother crawling up their leg with a knife in her teeth, but nobody should be asked to handle this trip.

  1. I put all of my money on Lo Pan the last go around and got FOOPED in the BOOP.

    Since I don’t learn my lessons, I am putting my entire wad on Dr. Frankenstein and hoping that I can retire once this is over.

  2. Good to see the #12 over #5 upsets that dominate NCAA are alive and well here too. Borat was great, but Mr. Bean was Mr. fucking Bean. Some of these were really hard to choose. Love this tourney!
