Casting Call For College Comedians

  by mtvU.

mtvU, available on 750 campuses and many millions of cable packages nationwide, is looking for the next generation of stand-ups and comedy stars. Come out to the Upright Citizens Brigade East Theatre in NYC and show us what you’ve got! Bring your best-stand-up material, or a funny song (instruments allowed, even encouraged), or the sketch that always slays your audience in the student center—whatever you think shows off your talents. You can perform individually, or as a duo or group or thirty-six piece collective; all we ask is that you keep your performance to ten minutes or less. If chosen to participate in our new ‘College Quickies’ program, you could end up reaching an audience roughly 1,000 times the size of your own student body.

We’ll be seeing students on November 15th and 16th, between 2pm and 5pm. To set up a time, please e-mail We look forward to seeing what you’ve got!
