Comic Strip Live brings back its Audition Lottery

After a two-year hiatus, the Comic Strip Live is bringing back the Lottery hat that allows just about anyone to have his or her shot at making the rite of passage and become a regular stand-up comedian at the club on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Here are the details: Anyone 18 and older can audition, so long as they arrive at the club by 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1. (Note: This is not an April Fool's prank) Everyone will pick a number out of a hat that will determine the date they will audition for the club. Auditions are five minutes long and will always take place on consecutive Tuesdays starting April 7. Participants will be seen by the Comic Strip Live booker and owners. Those who make the cut will receive a number of paid spots per week and will appear on the same stage where Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, and Chris Rock honed their craft.
