Get ready to roll on the floor with laughter as DZMM launches "LOL" (Laugh Out Loud), a weekly show that will search for the best stand-up comedian on radio.
Thirty-six aspiring and amateur stand-up comedians will compete in the contest that will be aired every Sunday, 1 PM to 2 PM, on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo starting August 24. Singer-comedian Norman Mitchell will host the show, which features a panel of judges composed of Pretty Trizsa, Ahwel, Kitkat, and Irene Panganiban.
DZMM Program and Production Services Manager Marah Faner-Capuyan said the challenge is for the stand-up comedians to showcase their comic talents aurally and visually.
"Contestants should remember that DZMM is primarily radio though it is also broadcast on cable TV. Their comic spiels must be written for the ear, but they must not neglect the props and costumes for the visuals for TV," she said.
The grand winner, who will be called Tawa King or Queen, will win P20,000 and a contract with DZMM.
