Joe Dungan, one of my hardest working students and one of my master teachers just won The Clean Comedy Challenge 2017 at the Ice House in Pasadena, CA!
Joe competed against a litany of other comedians. And he must've done great because at the end of the performances one of the other comedians said to him, "Get ready to collect your prize money," implying that it was clear who won the Clean Comedy Challenge.

He's a little awkward on stage. He's working on it, but he comes across as the guy next door or maybe the 'creepy' guy next door.
He's got a lot of the locals including the local club owner who constantly berate him. They put him down, they tease, they pick.
He said, "Jerry, you've got to help me. I just have these guys totally hating on me all the time. What do I do?"
