The legendary BET show for comedians is back!!! Comic View is making a comeback on BET and Kevin Hart is the host!!!
Like most comedic actors, Kevin got his start doing stand-up, so it was only right that he hosted Comic View: One Mic Stand and gave rising comedic talent a chance.
BET’s ComicView is a staple in stand-up comedy. From 1992 to 2008, it launched the careers of Cedric The Entertainer, DL Hughley, Rodney Perry, countless others and even had hosts Kevin Hart, Sheryl Underwood, Bruce Bruce, Gary Owen and more!
Now ComicView is back, and talent scouts are scouring comics all over the nation. Houston’s Improv Comedy Club will be holding auditions for two days, June 3rd and 4th. Witness your laughter shape someones future, because without your support the art form comedy wouldn’t be possible. Tickets are available on their website HERE .
