A Madden 12 video game tournament will be held from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at Blacktop Comedy in Roseville.

Paul Burke, owner/operator of the new theater that specializes in improvised comedy, said he has friends “who love Madden” and thought it would be great to hold a tournament celebrating the annual release of the newest version of the game.

A bake sale also will be held during the tournament, and Blacktop Comedy plans to donate proceeds to a local school to be named. The tournament is free to enter, but a $5 donation is encouraged.

Blacktop Comedy improvisers will provide color commentary for the tournament.
“We thought that would be pretty fun to do,” Burke said.

First prize will be a private Blacktop Comedy performance for the winner, friends and family. Second prize is a four-pack of tickets to any Blacktop Comedy performance. Third is a Habit Burger gift card, and fourth is a gift card at Century Theaters.
