While September was a light month in the Belly Room, Roast Battle made waves elsewhere with road shows in San Diego and Flagstaff, along with another successful TV season taped across the pond in England. On the other side of America, Comedy Fight Club enjoyed a busy month in New York. Let’s take a look at the rankings.

Los Angeles Top Ten

1. Toby Muresianu 13-4-1
2. Nicole Becannon 11-5
3. Alex Duong 14-7
4. Pat Barker 18-8-2
5. Doug Fager 11-6-1
6. Leah Kayajanian 13-9-1
7. Omid Singh 18-9
8. Jamar Neighbors 7-6
9. Joe Eurell 12-10-2
10. Keith Carey 17-19

For the first time ever, there is zero movement in the top ten. We have a few records being adjusted, as the road shows count towards records but don’t impact the rankings. As a result, tack two more wins onto Pat Barker’s record (vs. Omid Singh in San Diego and Jay Light in Flagstaff), one loss onto Omid’s, and one more onto Keith Carey’s ledger (vs. Jay Light in San Diego).

New York Top Ten

1. Dan Wickes
2. Sean Finnerty
3. Drew Drevyanko
4. Dave Sirus
5. Paul Hooper
6. Yoshiko Watson
7. Maddy Smith
8. JP McDade
9. Jerry Martinez
10. Jake Vevera

After defeating Drew Drevyanko on the three-year anniversary show, Dan Wickes takes the Comedy Fight Club title and top overall spot on the list. On that same show, Sean Finnerty solidified his status as the number one contender by defeating Yoshiko Watson. Former Roastmasters #1 contender Dave Sirus makes his CFC rankings debut at 4, while Jerry Martinez moves up to number 9 with a win over Mikey Mayes. Lastly, Jake Vevera hops into the top ten after beating another former Roastmasters #1 contender in Chris Crespo.

Los Angeles 11-20

11. Bryan Vokey 9-3
12. Sarah Keller 9-2-2
13. Jeanne Whitney 8-2
14. Quentin Thomas 8-4
15. Dan Nolan 12-12
16. Mike Schmidt 6-2
17. Alex Hooper 13-9
18. Isaac Hirsch 7-2
19. Rena Hundert 7-2
20. Jeff Sewing 6-4-2

Once again, I have very little work to do in this bracket. Sarah Keller moves up a spot after her overtime with over Hella Show co-producer Josh Waldron, and that concludes all the movement here.

New York 11-20

11. Catherine Zini
12. Chris Crespo
13. Patrick Schroeder
14. Chloe McGovern
15. Jessica Fleischer
16. Anthony Passaretti
17. Mia Faith Hammond
18. David Spector
19. Jill Weiner
20. Mikey Mayes

Catherine Zini defeated Chloe McGovern at the anniversary show to move to the brink of the top ten, while McGovern drops from 9 to 14. Chris Crespo had an up-and-down month, losing to Jake Vevera but then pulling out a win over Patrick Schroeder. He falls from 6 to 12 because New York’s rankings are harsh as fuck, while Schroeder drops a single spot with his loss. Jessica Fleischer, a former tournament finalist, is dominating the most recent CFC tournament and moving her way up the rankings as she looks for a title shot. We round out the top 20 with Jill Weiner (win over Dan Abraham) and Mikey Mayes (loss to Jerry Martinez)

Los Angeles 21-30

21. Jay Light 15-16-1
22. Jacob Trimmer 7-4-1
23. Brett Erickson 6-0
24. Galina Rivina 7-4
25. Zach Stein 10-6
26. Evan Cassidy 6-4
27. Ramsey Badawi 5-3
28. John-Michael Bond 8-4
29. Stuart Thompson 6-6
30. Caesar Lizardo 9-6

Jay Light’s record moves to 15-16-1 after the win over Carey and the loss to Barker, and Zach Stein moves back into the top 25 after beating Heather Marulli. And that’s it. Light day of work for me.

New York 21-30

21. Dan Abraham
22. Pauline Murphy
23. KP Burke
24. Robbie Goodwin
25. Davidson Boswell
26. Pedro Gonzalez
27. Leo Volf
28. Rob Ryan
29. Jessica Clayton
30. Bobby Sheehan

Dan Abraham falls out of the top 20 after his loss to Jill Weiner, while Robbie Goodwin and Davidson Boswell both enter the rankings after a great main event battle that Goodwin barely edged out. Jessica Clayton beat Bobby Sheehan in what was one of the best fights in recent memory in the CFC Arena, earning both a spot in the rankings for the first time.

Los Angeles 31-40

31. Jonathan Rowell 5-5-1
32. Tony Bartolone 7-8
33. Katrina Davis 5-3
34. Valerie Tosi 4-2
35. Ashley Johnson 5-1
36. Armando Torres 4-3-1
37. Robin Tran 4-7-1
38. Dylan Sullivan 3-0
39. Billy Anderson 4-0
40. Logan Guntzelman 3-1

Finally, some battles to cover. Ashley Johnson moves to a very impressive 5-1 after his win over Kelsey Lane. He slots in at 35, one spot ahead of Armando Torres following Torres’ loss to Billy Anderson. Anderson moves up to 39 with a bright and shiny 4-0 record. Robin Tran’s win over Selene Whittington moves her up to 37, concluding our most active bracket thusfar.

41. Rachel Mac 3-2-1
42. Brian McDaniel 5-3
43. Greg Roque 5-3
44. April Lotshaw 4-3
45. Paige Wesley 6-8
46. Micah Bleich 3-0
47. Tim McGorry 5-3
48. Movses Shakarian 5-5
49. Mark Stevens 4-2
50. Tom Whalen 4-2

No movement here, minus the beautiful coincidence of Loudcast co-hosts and obnoxious Massholes of note Mark Stevens and Tom Whalen moving into the final two spots with identical 4-2 records.
