Comedians will perform as long as they can without getting voted off, until one is crowned "Nastiest Comic."

Ten comics will compete for cash and prizes, Two comedians will be performing from their homes using webcams to the online and live audiences. Additional comedians  will perform on the stage at the Downtown Comedy Club.  All comedians will be judged in real time by both audiences. This marks the second Battlecam comedy night.  Jon Huck, won the inaugural event and will return as Battlecam champion.
