The “Stand Up, It’s Miller Time” comedy contest has worked its way through three semi-final rounds, and now an online wildcard round, to decide the five finalists who will be appearing in the Las Vegas finale. Wildcard winner Dwayne Gill, originally from the Chicago region, will be joining other regional winners Burpie (Charlotte), Landry (Atlanta), Willie Lynch Jr. (Chicago), and Lavar Walker (New Orleans) in Vegas, where they’ll go head to head in front of Special Guest Judge Kevin Hart.
While these comics have been competing, you have too—by registering to vote for your favorite comic, you also had the chance to enter to win great prizes, like Beats by Dr. Dre™ headphones, a Karmaloop digital gift card, copies of Kevin Hart’s concert DVD, “Laugh at My Pain,” and exclusive music downloads.
The winner of the grand prize—a trip to Las Vegas to attend the “Stand Up, It’s Miller Time” finale—will be notified this week, but you can all take part in the final show by tuning in for the live simulcast, which will be streaming at standupitsmillertime.com on August 30, starting at 10:30 PM PT. There will be a re-broadcast on August 31 for all y'all back east.
