The ABFF Comedy Wings Semi Finals Competition Kicks Off In Atlanta; To Be Hosted By Rodney Perry

Comedy News

It’s almost that time of the year where The American Black Film Festival starts to ramp up The Comedy Wings Competiton in preparation for their upcoming festival.

With that being said, we know that the folks over at the ABFF are trying to narrow down the final five that shall attend the festival to compete, and unlike last year where they were selected in Los Angeles, it seems that this year the finalists are going to square off in Atlanta at The Uptown Comedy Corner.

We hear that the show is April 20th and will be hosted by comedian Rodney Perry, with the final contestants of TuRae Gordon, Jason Weems, Brandon Houston, Damon Sumner, Jasmine Ellis, Cyrus Steele II, Bianca Christovao, Brandon Cole (B- Cole), and Shereen Kassam are set to square off for a trip to Miami June 14-18th.

As you may recall, last year Comedy Wings Competition crowned comedian Daphnique Springs as the winner, which was hosted by Cedric The Entertainer. This year, the competition sets out to crown its 5th annual winner.

If you are not familiar, The Comedy Wings Competition is a national search for the new stars of comedy. The goal of the competition is to provide a platform for talented yet undiscovered comedians to break into film and television. Semifinalists are selected from around the country to participate in the live audition, and the finalists are hand picked by the judges to proceed to the event at the 2017 ABFF in Miami.

More details soon!
