Amateur Night at the Apollo is one of New York’s most popular live entertainment experiences, attracting performers and audiences the world over.
A brand new line-up of contestants competes for the chance to perform during the June 14 Show Off and move on to Top Dog on August 10. It all leads to the chance of winning the title of Super Top Dog and a cash prize of $10,000 in November!
Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Then get ready to cheer or jeer as you decide who stays and who gets booted off stage. At Amateur Night, you tell the performers to be good or be gone!
Amateur Night at the Apollo is hosted by the comedian Capone. Each show begins with a festive pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess. The show also features master impressionist and tap dancer CP Lacey as the “Executioner,” who escorts contestants who have been booed off the stage and the Amateur Night house band led by music director, Michael Mitchell.
