The 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. All of them went on to become super stars.
RiotLA has hand-picked equally promising performers, each with his or her own qualities which stand out in this ever-evolving culture of comedy. These performers all have elements of originality, creativity, spirit and execution, as exemplified by Rodney Dangerfield.
Revered as a comedic genius with brilliant material and perfected delivery, Rodney headlined in Vegas for over three decades, his popularity transcending generations. A very rare accomplishment.
The Rodney Dangerfield “Stand Up Stand Out Award” will be given to only one performer at the closing of this show which will be determined by our special guest judges.
