Those who impress the celebrity judges (Neil Flynn of Scrubs and Alfonso Ribeiro of Fresh Prince) will be featured in a post-audition showcase this evening at the Improv. Last Comic Standing host Bill Bellamy will be in town to head up the event, where you can check out some of the freshest local talent around. And who knows? You might catch a future contestant and be able to say, I saw them before they had their craft validated by reality television. Auditions start at 9 a.m. (but we recommend getting there as early as possible). Showcase starts at 8 p.m. 7620 Katy Freeway.
