LAST COMIC STANDING COMES TO MONTREAL
OPEN CALL AUDITIONS MARCH 17, 2007 AT KOLA NOTE
Montreal, Tuesday, February 6, 2007 -
Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce that NBC's hit show Last Comic Standing will come to Montreal, March 17, 2007 to audition Canada's finest comedic talent for the upcoming season.
The open call auditions will take place at Kola Note Saturday, March 17 beginning at 9:00 am. This year, the show is on the hunt for comedians ready to break-out in a hilarious, cut throat battle of stand-up in L.A.
This comedy reality show, now in its 5th season, scouts across the U.S. to select the top comedians among thousands of hopefuls and pits the funniest stand-ups against each other. The two remaining comedians compete in a final stand-off where TV audiences decide who will be the Last Comic Standing. For the very first time, Last Comic Standing will expand its search outside the U.S., hitting Montreal, London and Sydney.
This year's competition will be hosted by comic Bill Bellamy and judged by Last Comic Standing winner, Alonzo Bodden, Kathleen Madigan and Ant.
Auditions for Last Comic Standing will be two minutes long and those chosen will be asked to perform for a live studio audience at Kola Note on the night of the 17th. All comics selected from the live show at Kola Note will move on to the Last Comic Standing semi-finals. The finals will be shot in Los Angeles this summer.
