Island City Stage invites the community to listen, laugh and vote for South Florida’s funniest during its Stand-UP. STAND OUT! Comedy Contest on May 23 in advance of PRIDE Month. The theatre company has sought out local comics to test their stand-up shtick in front of a live audience in the hopes of securing a spot to open-up for select shows during the run of the company’s upcoming production of “The Mystery of Irma Vep” by Charles Ludlam, a comedic horror satire. “The Mystery of Irma Vep” is part of the award-winning theater company’s 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.
The Stand-UP. STAND OUT! Comedy Contest will feature local comics Peter Bisuito, Brian Coronado, Michael Evans, Mai LG aka Mrs. Saigon, Seetharaman “Seetha” Radhakrishnan, Vee Shally, Chris Shepard and Sarah Kenny performing at Island City Stage. One winner, chosen by a panel of local celebrity judges including Rod Hagwood, Michelle Solomon and Scott Ryan, plus audience support, will receive a $100 gift card and an opening guest spot role for select performances of “The Mystery of Irma Vep” that runs June 9 – July 10. A nominal fee of $10 to attend the competition will be donated to Island City Stage. #IslandCityStage @islandcitystage1
