In its eleventh consecutive year, NBC is proud to present another groundbreaking year of Stand-Up NBC. Through this initiative comedians of diverse backgrounds have been launched to new careermilestones. Each year NBC selects 3-5 cities across the country and holds both auditions and live showcases of the top diverse talent from that area. At the end of the search a handful of comedians are brought back to Los Angeles to showcase for key industry players at NBCUniversal and industry-wide. Many of the comics from last year’s Best of Stand-Up NBC showcase signed with top Hollywood agents and met with the entertainment industry’s leading casting directors and executives.
Select Stand-Up NBC finalists have the opportunity to perform at the NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) National Convention for major college bookers and an invitation to join the NBC Standup for Diversity College Tour.
This year’s search will take us to four major U.S. cities. Top comics have a chance to be brought to Los Angeles to showcase in the Best of Stand-Up NBC show, sign a holding deal with NBC, perform at the NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) National Convention, join the company of the Stand-Up NBC Nationwide College Tour, and much more!!
