Erma's Got Talent: The Stand-Up Auditions

Erma’s Got Talent, loosely formatted along the lines of America’s Got Talent, will offer 12 randomly selected contestants the opportunity to perform two minutes of their original stand-up material in front of three celebrity judges — acclaimed comedians Jane Condon, Wendy Liebman and Joel Madison. Nancy Berk, comedy writer and host of the podcast “Entertaining Insights,” will serve as emcee.

The winning contestant and runners up will perform on stage at Attendee Stand-Up Comedy Night on Saturday, April 6, at the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop at the University of Dayton. Other performers for that evening will be selected randomly after the auditions.

Entertaining and educational, Erma's Got Talent is an instructional opportunity for participants as well as the audience. The judges will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of performance/material and offer expert suggestions.

While this event is free and open to the public, only registered workshop attendees are eligible to perform. A sign-up sheet will be available for interested attendees in mid-January.

The April 4-6 Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop is sold out, but a waitlist is available. We’re also offering “Erma Home Schooling,” featuring five keynote addresses and four exclusive workshops.
