The winner of the 15th annual StandUp NBC comedy competition is Mike E. Winfield, who beat out 1,600 applicants to win the network’s annual search for comedians of diverse backgrounds.

Winfield has been awarded a talent holding deal with NBCUniversal and a headlining spot at the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) annual convention, where he will perform for talent bookers from across the country. He will also headline the regional semi-finalist showcases for the 2019 StandUp NBC competition.

Baltimore native Winfield was chosen from eight finalists, including Vincent Bryant, Ali Clayton, Calvin Evans, Sohrab Forouzesh, Jay Jurden, Luz Pazos and Venessa Peruda. They were among 1,600 stand-up comedians who auditioned last year through online submissions and open calls in Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas and New York. READ MORE
