NYC Talent Show is the world’s greatest open stage and a real New York City Tradition. It’s a decade old art performance show started at Bowery Poetry Club by  Diane O’Debra and Victor Varnado where anyone can walk on stage whether they are a first time performer or a seasoned veteran and get treated like a star. A star that leaves the stage when bellman’s bell is rung telling them that their time on stage is over.

Now exclusively streamed live on Camfrog, you can come down and entertain thousands every week or watch everyone having fun at

Performers on the show have included Kristen Schaal, Hannibal Buress, Jim Gaffigan, and Jonathan Aimes.


– 6 minutes of stage time
– The first performer always gets paid
– No Heckling (unless the performer starts it)
– If you make us say “Holy Shit” with your performance, you get a free drink.
– There is always a contest. Winner gets $5
– keep it weird

FREE, but there is a suggested donation of $5

Hosted by Victor Varnado and Pam Wess
