The NBCUniversal Late Night Writers Workshop is a multi-day program focused on exposing talented sketch and comedy writers to NBCUniversal’s late night & alternative line-up and readying them for a staff writer position. We are looking for writers who are “almost there,” but need that final bit of preparation and exposure to key industry players. We particularly encourage female writers and those of diverse backgrounds to apply. The selected writers will create new sketch material and gain insight into the dynamics of a late night writers’ room. Participants are given the chance to interact with key writers and producers from across NBCUniversal’s late night and alternative shows, as well as receive feedback on their material.

Success stories include: Tone Bell (Bad Judge, People are Talking), Hannibal Buress (30 Rock, Neighbors, SNL), Ian Edwards (Saturday Night Live), Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder, Mr. Robinson), Eric Andre (Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23),  and Deon Cole (Conan, Black-ish).

HOW IT WORKS

Regional Open Call Audition

In each of our four cities, we will hold an open call audition. Only the first 100 comics who arrive will be seen. Comics will have one minute to perform at the initial audition. A handful will be invited back later that day to callbacks to perform a longer 2-3 minute set. From these, the top comics are selected to perform in the showcase the next evening.

Semi-Finalist Live Showcase

The regional showcase takes place the day following auditions, in the evening. The chosen few are asked to perform 5-7 minutes of material before a live audience. This is not a show that will air on NBC, but rather an opportunity to be showcased for agents, casting directors, and television executives in consideration for future casting and development opportunities.

Los Angeles Showcase

8-10 StandUp NBC Finalists will be flown to Los Angeles to perform in front of a live audience of agents, casting directors, and television executives. Winner(s) will receive a one-year Talent Holding Deal with NBC, meetings with NBC Casting execs, and an invitation to join the Stand Up for Diversity College Tour.
