StandUp NBC is a nationwide search for comedians of diverse backgrounds. Comedians from across the country ultimately showcase for key players at NBCUniversal and throughout the industry. Top finalists are offered an NBC Talent Holding Deal plus auditions & meetings with NBCUniversal Casting & Show Development executives. Alumni include: Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Carmichael Show), Ron Funches (Powerless, Undateable), Tone Bell (Bad Judge, People are Talking), Hannibal Buress (Broad City, 30 Rock, Neighbors, SNL), Ian Edwards (SNL), Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder, Mr. Robinson), Eric Andre (Two Broke Girls, Man Seeking Woman), and Deon Cole (Conan, Black-ish).
The regional showcase takes place at Helium the following evening after auditions. The chosen few are asked to perform approximately 7 minutes of material before a live audience. These semi-finalist showcases will NOT air on NBC, but rather are an opportunity to be seen by bookers, agents, casting directors, and television executives in consideration for future casting and development opportunities as well as the Los Angeles Finals.
This show is 21+ (18+ with parent). Tickets will be available for pick up at the box office prior to the show (they are generally available 1.5-2 hrs prior to showtime.)
