THE ICK FACTOR
The bananafor some, it may be just a fruit, but for the comics entering the Dirtiest Sketch in NYC Contest, its the ultimate weapon. With a three-minute time limit, contestants are asked to perform outrageously disgusting, raunchy pieces that, in past contests, have included full-frontal nudity and sticking strange objects (like bananas) in strange places for maximum gross-out results. Winners are chosen by the ensuing audience applause or the amount of shocked silence. The late-night hilarity is hosted by Jackie Clarke and the sketch-comedy trio Hot Sauce.
