Rodney Dangerfield Award ShowcaseThe Rodney Dangerfield “Stand Up Stand Out Award” is given to support emerging stand-up comedians who exemplify the attributes Rodney would look for when booking talent for his HBO shows which featured such originals as Sam Kinison, Roseanne Barr, Jerry Seinfeld and other notables.
