Stand Up for Diversity!

Posted by Maximum Fun on 8th November 2007

Once a year, NBC holds a standup comedy contest for comics who aren’t white. It’s called “Stand up for Diversity.” The cool part about this contest is that the winner actually gets a holding deal at NBC — which if I’m not mistaken is what you get for winning Last Comic Standing, too. A year or two ago, our buddy Brent Weinbach (half-filipino, half-jew) won the contest, and while he didn’t get a guest show on Joey, he did make some money and contacts out of it.

The big show is tonight in New York, and it’s hosted by the very funny Jordan Carlos. So if you’re not already going to see Kasper Hauser, see deets below.
