Update: Laughing Liberally find local

The results of the "Laughing Liberally" competition were announced, and after a gruelingly funny night at Joke Joint Comedy Club, Chris Maddock was crowned champion of local laughs.

The Stillwater native is hardly a newbie to the local comedy scene; in 2002 the funnyman was a finalist for the "Funniest Person in the Twin Cities" title, and is currently part of the Comedy Death Squad, a troupe that promises to "rip your arm off and hit you in the face with it with comedy!" While touring the Midwest (and some the East Coast), Maddock has worked with comedians including Doug Stanhope, Tom Rhodes, and Dwight York.

This Saturday at 8 p.m., Chris Maddock will perform at the Ordway’s Laughing Liberally comedy event, which features national comedians Jim David, Julie Goldman, James Adomian, Baratunde Thurston, and Jamie Jackson.

You can check out some of Maddock’s routine here, which pokes fun at Al Franken haters, Republicans who object to porn, and conservatives preferences for the worst performers country music has to offer.
