TurboTax, Comedian Team For Promotion

  • January 23, 2008
Comedian Jay Mohr is teaming with TurboTax to offer TaxLaugh.com, a competition for wannabe comedians to showcase their talent, win $10,000 and the opportunity to open for Mohr at an Improv comedy club in Southern California.

"Most people think doing your own taxes is hard, and being funny is easy," said Mohr, whose credits include "Last Comic Standing," "Jerry Maguire," "Saturday Night Live," and "The Ghost Whisperer." "We're out to prove them wrong. TaxLaugh will give comedians the chance to make a name for themselves by making people laugh about something no one likes--taxes."

To enter, budding comics can create and submit a comedy video of up to three minutes. It can be stand-up, sketch, alternative or musical comedy, as long as it's about taxes. Videos can be submitted through March 24 at 11:59 p.m. Mohr will help pick the winning video and his opening act for one night.
