NEW YORK, NY – The Original NYC Talent Show is pleased to announce its Sunday night online talent show, where anyone can be a star. Thousands of viewers will be watching the online open stage where both seasoned professionals and first-time performers grace the same virtual stage for five minutes at a time and anything can happen.

Aired every Sunday night at 9 PM EST, hosts Victor Varnado (Conan O’Brien, The New Yorker) and Pam Wess (UCB) welcome eclectic performances streamed live at Comedians, musicians, poets, and sometimes people who suddenly decide to take their clothes off sign up for a spot on the show. Amateur performers are paid five whole dollars to perform and are tipped for outstanding work.

Ali Spagnola, a comedian and musician with over 3 million followers across social media will be a featured performer.

The show is produced by Supreme Robot Pictures, LLC. (The Great Fantasy Debate – Facebook Watch, Awkward Comedy Show – Comedy Central, Realm of LARP – Nerdist).

The Original NYC Talent Show was started in 2009 by Varnado and Diane Langan (O’Debra) at the historic Bowery Poetry Club in New York’s East Village. Performers on the show over the years have included Jim Gaffigan, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal, Jonathan Ames, and Andrew W. K.

The tradition of the open stage is a long one in the Big Apple, and NYC Talent Show refuses to let the pandemic put a stop to this amazing event.
