I applied for a comedy grant. Quoting from the website: “The Martin Grant was established by Steve Hofstetter and Next Round Entertainment in order to identify and reward up and coming stand-up comedians. It was inspired by Hofstetter’s work on Laughs, and the loss of his father. Read the full story here.
The grant was named in honor of Hofstetter’s father, Martin. The grant will be awarded in order to aid a talented comedian with rent, car payments, or anything else that will help them focus on developing their art. A panel of some of the most influential television executives, comedy club owners, talent agents, and managers will view applications and eventually decide a winner.
The grant is funded thanks to Reddit.com and their wonderful store. A unique comedy tee was designed exclusively by Inkventive, and 100% of all proceeds from sales are used to fund the grant.”
Today was exciting, because I found out I was accepted as a finalist! Woohoo!
