Are you looking for info about pitching a story for "crack-up" ? 

Deadline: We'll need to hear from you at least 24 hours before the show.

There are only 5 slots for slammers each crack-up show so it is a good idea to leave at least 4 minutes of your story here. If we like it, we'll contact you and you'll be in! Only 2 pre-picked per night.
