The Big Bang Show is an awesome experience, and a chance to catch a glimpse of Tampa Bay’s rising stars. It can be described as The Gong Show meets American Idol meets Whose Line is it Anyway, and is a unique event on the St. Pete nightlife scene.
The format of the show allows five contestants to perform for the audience and local celebrity judges. After their bit, the acts are critiqued by the judges, but the winner is determined at the end of the night by audience applause. Interspersed throughout the show are hilarious improvised comedy scenes from Tampa Bay’s premier improv group Got Jokes?
Since this is the final show, the evening’s talent will be the best of the best, creating stiff competition, and an enjoyable nights.
The contestants vying for the $1,000 grand-prize will be Miss Understood (poet/singer), Chris Matson (comedian), the Jim Morey Band (big band), Chuck Glass (comedian), Catherine Larson (comedian), J'Nelle (singer), Pretty Paul (comedian), Chris Gorges (comedian), Phillip Ott (poet), and Black Zappa (human beat-box). This will be a show you don’t want to miss!
The final round of The Big Bang Show will be judged by Michael Novilla, owner of NOVA 535, Wild 94.1’s Hip-Hop HO(st) and Got Jokes? cast member Alli That Girl, and Christian Johnson, AKA CJ, “LA’s most dangerous personality”. Past Big Bang Show judges have included Amanda and Torrie from Wild 94.1’s Girls Gone Sports, CitiLife Magazine editor-in-chief Sterling Powell, stand-up comic Christine O’Leary and socialite Carol Gallagher.
