Rosebud Baker, Robert Dean, Kellen Erskine, Simon Gibson, MK Paulsen, Alzo Slade, Daphnique Springs and hundreds of other young comics just starting to get their first breaks auditioned to become the 2018 class of “New Faces” at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival this year. A brand new Amazon Prime series documented their efforts from the audition process straight through to the end of the line.
Today Amazon released the trailer for the new series, which kicks off exclusively on Amazon Prime on November 30th. Part of the trailer includes a brief peek at some of today’s most famous faces, back when they were still new- baby faced Kevin Hart in 2001, Amy Schumer in 2007, Colin Jost in 2010, Pete Holmes in 2009, Ali Wong in 2011.
What’s it like to compete for one of those coveted spots? How do they hone their spots from that first audition through the big performance at the Just for Laughs audition? What motivates them along the way? Tune in November 30th.
