The 7th Annual ECNY Award nominations are out and fluttering about on the New York comedy interwebs. The show itself, sure to be a drunken fustercluck of NYC alt-comedy snuggling, takes place on March 14, 2011, at 8:30pm at 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson Street and will be hosted for the fourth year in a row by Jon Friedman.

Fun fact: 30 Rock magic man Scott Adsit is one of the nominees!
