The polls have closed. The Elite 8 will be announced Monday morning, March 24. Introducing the Standup Throwdown Round Two Winners -- the Elite 8
The call went out last month. Riverfront Times asked local comedians to tweet us a joke about St. Louis with the hashtag #stlfact. From the fifty people who threw their hat in the ring, we've selected the standup comedians with the sixteen funniest jokes for entry into our third annual Standup Throwdown. So here they are: The Tweet 16.
Now we need your assistance. Take a gander at the following head-to-head matchups and cast your vote for the tweets you think are funniest. The eight surviving comics, as determined by RFT readers, will compete live at Fitz's Restaurant on the Delmar Loop on Thursday, March 27. The Elite 8 will each do a five minute set with the winners moving moving on to the Final Four -- another live competition to be held April 1 at the Blueberry Hill Duck Room.
So let's get to it! Check out the tweets on the following pages, and cast your ballots now. Voting ends at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 23.Christopher Cyr

The Jeffersons were going to be set in St. Louis but it changed to New York when they realized the east side of STL is a step down. #stlfact— Tiel Pearce (@Tiel52093) February 27, 2014
