As we announced the finalists for the first round of our comedy competition, one of the contestants filmed his hilarious reaction to the news.

The WPDH Funniest Person in the Hudson Valley contest continues this Friday, September 29 at Joker's Comedy Club in Chester. Eight comedians, however, have already had their shot at fame during round one in Poughkeepsie.

On Monday morning, as The Boris and Robyn Show announced the first three finalists who would compete to be the funniest in the Hudson Valley, comedian Andy McDermott listened with anticipation while lying in bed.

McDermott's topless reaction to the news is priceless, and demonstrates why he had the audience cracking up with just a simple raise of the eyebrow on Friday.
