Pulitzer Surprises
Pulitzer Surprises
According to the Pulitzer website, anyone can nominate anything for a Pulitzer Prize and Pulitzer Surprises takes advantage of that horrible idea. Our favorite comedians perform their submission for a Pulitzer! Then we interview a real-life Pulitzer Prize winner who has actually done something good. At the end of the show the audience will cast their vote on who deserves a Pulitzer, and then we will really submit it for a Pulitzer Prize. That winner walks away a “Pulitzer Prize Entrant."
