Stand Up 360 Comedy Festival

Sunday, May 13th, 2012
       It is that time of year again as we approach the annual Stand Up 360 Comedy Festival….Last year’s inaugural event was highlighted with a great show for Wounded  Warriors featuring Judah Friendlander from 30 Rock as well as some of New York’s top comedians…The mayor’s office proclaimed the festivities Stand Up 360 week in New York City….
      The festival is dedicated to all the young talent in New York….While a lot of festivals, concentrate on faces you know or people that have been around for many years, the Stand Up 360 gives audiences a chance to see the next big stars of tommorow.
       Over 500 people participated last year in the festival…The eventual winner was Gulio Gallarotti who won an all expense paid package to London England to perform at the famed Jonguleurs Comedy Club.
       This year a lot of the preliminary rounds are being held at New York and Broadway Comedy Club in NYC….Comics can also submit dvd for viewing…
       This year will have an extra twist….A SECOND CHANCE show, that is a show for people who either found out about the festival too late or want one more crack….This show will be held at the new Greenwich Vvillage comedy club slated to open in  July.
