“As a comic and sketch performer, Just For Laughs is already an incredible experience to rub shoulders with your peers and luminaries in comedy, and then to get an opportunity to stand up & pitch to the best in the business makes it even better...especially, if you win (like we did)!”
-- Daheli Hall, Writer, Actor, Dear White People, (Netflix), currently appearing in Bad Hair (Hulu), Stand Up & Pitch 2017 winner (Angry Black Women)
“ComedyPro Stand Up & Pitch was a crash course in performing a pitch. Pitching on stage with execs on one side and an audience on another gives you immediate feedback to what works. It was an invaluable experience and one I'll never forget.”
-- Ron Eigen, Director, Editor, soon to be released feature documentary The One and Only Dick Gregory, 2019 Stand Up & Pitch finalist (Groceries)
