First Look Showcase

First Look Showcases are held at the best clubs in America, and at the end of the day these clubs are businesses. They function as an intermediary. Our job is to find the best talent possible that can also help fill up the room, which is our responsibility to the club. We provide the best environment, most supportive audiences, and private coaching to provide an aspiring comedian with a perfect beginning to a new career, which is our responsibility to the performer. This show requires performers to promote their friends and family and requires that they attend. It is great for people with strong local support systems, but if you are new in town this show is not for you.
