It is said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This show seeks to prove that by pitting 8 comedians head-to-head in a hilarious tournament-style debate of “what’s hot” and “what’s not”. Each round will consist of two comedians that will be given a hot trending topic such as “TikTok, Kanye West, the High-Five”. One will have to argue the pro (treasure) side vs the other arguing the con (trash) side of the topic for the audience to decide if it is Trash or Treasure. That’s right – we are keeping or canceling people and trends right on stage y’all.
The comedians that make it through the first round will advance to a speed round of trash or treasure. Winners will close out the night with a stand-up comedy set for continued laughter. Hosted/moderated by the host of iTunes top-charting podcasts Stephen Settani and the hot and hilarious up and coming comedian Lamar Mitchell J.R.
Wow He Said That presents “Are you Ready or Not”. Each comic is slotted for 10 mins, at the 5-minute mark we will have the crowd vote “keep going or NEXT!!!” There will be comics on standby to fill time for people who can’t make it to the last 5 mins of their set. Our brand is about providing opportunities for our local comics, now it’s time to put up or shut up.
