Celebrate Black History Month by making someone else cry on stage. UCB resurrects Showtime at the Apollo’s famous amateur nights and invites comedians, singers, dancers and other brave souls to perform for a very tough and vocal crowd. Presiding over the cheers and sneers is host Mo’Nique as played by Nicole Byer. A comedian in her own right, Byer is a UCB veteran, who you’ve probably seen regularly giving sisterly advice on MTV’s Girl Code. Good luck up there and don’t embarrass us.
