Company Statement

"Do you have a DVD or video link that is making money for you right now?
Do you have an agent or manager?

Comedians are never out of work. Casting Directors are always looking for the next great comic. A strong stand-up set is one of the best ways to break into TV/Film.

You don't have to pursue it to get the advantage of having a stand-up set to stand out to agents and industry people.

Get an edge on every other actor in the city. Perform at Gotham and get a broadcast quality DVD. The DVD's from these shows have launched countless careers."

“From this tape I was able to instantly get bookings around the country. I will be forever grateful to Andy Engel and the platform he provides for new comics. I was doing a new talent show , and Andy went out of his way to introduce me to Chris Mazzilli the owner of Gotham... Chris booked me on AXS TV ‘Gotham Comedy Live’.” (September 2013)

"Andy Engel's New Talent shows are an invaluable resource for any comic serious about making this a career. It's where I stopped dreaming of being a comedian and became one. I simply wouldn't have gotten my first TV credit, AXS TV, without the help of Andy Engel and the platform his New Talent show provided me." (September 2013)
