NBC Auditions for Stand Up Comics and comedians
stand up for diversity talent search
NBC is holding a talent search for their Stand Up For Diversity project – A nationwide search for fresh comedic acts nationwide. The search started early this summer and is coming to a close very soon. Comics wishing to audition have 2 more audition dates left – Dallas 8/21 and New York 9/18.
The national search seeks to find the funniest comics of diverse backgrounds and will be holding open calls in five major U.S. markets. The most-promising stand-up comedians will be awarded a talent holding deal with NBCU, along with other opportunities to be announced later this year.
The show will pick comics for a showcase this winter where they will present the up and coming comics to the industry. NBCU will select the freshest comics that they may want to work with. The showcase is scheduled for early December and will take place in Los Angeles.
Prospective participants and audience members can check for details online at www.standupnbc.com or www.diversecitynbc.com.
