More information about Amateur Night

One of New York City’s most popular and anticipated live entertainment experiences, Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater sees a diverse group of talented artists on the rise compete to advance to the semi-finals. At this special show, audience participation is key: showgoers are famously tough to please and punctuate acts with votes determining whether an artist will “be good or be gone.”

An event larger than the competition itself, Amateur Night begins with a pre-show party featuring video and music by DJ Jess, a New York fixture. To add in laughs, the comedian Capone hosts the evening and improvises bits based on acts, which, if not good, might just get swept off the stage by C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner. It’s all in good humor! If you’ve got opinions about others’ talents or lack thereof, then this is the show for you.

What to Watch For

  • They say in New York that people are tolerant of your beliefs but judgmental of your shoes. At Amateur Night, you get to bring all your judgment to the Apollo Theater and help decide the stars who will rise and the trash that will be taken out back.
  • Capone, your evening’s host, and a New York comedian, was born and raised in the Bronx and has worked with legends such as Tracy Morgan, Mike Epps, and others.
  • Don’t be afraid to be vocal: audiences help determine who will “be good or be gone,” meaning their interaction decides the fate of the performers. Every talent show needs a custodian to take out the garbage, and C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner, will be on hand to usher bad acts off the stage. And C.P. Lacey will be the best-dressed janitor you’ve ever seen!
