Stand-Up NBC 2017 came to Chicago!
Each year NBC spotlights a few select cities around the country and holds both auditions and live showcases of the best performances from local comedians. With all the monster talent that exists in Chicago, it was pretty amazing to see so many comics come out and show off what they do best.

The auditions were held at Laugh Factory Chicago where hundreds of comics lined up for HOURS, for the opportunity to audition & see if they had what it takes to move on.

Here are Chicago Semi-finalists:
Aaron Branch
Arish Singh
Ben Noble
Dewayne Perkins
Franco Nguyen
Fumi Abe
Meg Indurti
Prateek Srivastava
Sammy Arechar
T. Murph

Finalists from each city are flown back to Los Angeles to showcase for NBC Universal and industry-wide networks. This can lead to signing some great with top Hollywood agents and meeting with the entertainment industry’s top casting directors and executives.
