#AmateurNightApollo

The winners of recent Amateur Night shows come together to show off their talent and compete for the chance to move on to the Finals on August 21st. Contestants who make it this far can compete for the title of Grand Finale Winner and a cash prize ($5,000 in the Child Star category and $20,000 in the Adult category) on November 27th!

Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. 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 followed by the dynamic vocals of Joe Gray, the “Set it Off Man.” And keep a lookout for C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.

Harlem residents, employees, and business owners and students can save 50% on tickets to this moving performance. Half-Off for Harlem tickets can be purchased in person at the Apollo Theater Box Office. Ticket buyers must provide proof of residence or work ID. Offer available only while supplies last.
