Strong Comics & Poets only!

There will be a cold reading from the script 

Poets will spit! Does not have to be an original piece

Comics will do a set of their own material (2 min limit)

KILLED is the hottest entertainment club in the city, therefore, comics and poets come from far and near seeking an opportunity to hit the stage and kill it! General, the ruthless owner of KILLED, has a reputation for being a very shroud business man. It’s nothing for him to dock a performer’s pay, if he pays them at all. He’s even been known to receive “kickbacks” for letting certain comics hit the stage.

About Me

Curtis Von

Since entertaining was never a career goal, who knew that after accepting a challenge over a decade ago, Curtis Von would go on to star in over ten films, 40 theatrical productions, numerous commercials, and form his own production company? Certainly not him, but that’s exactly what the Houston native did. 

Curtis Von quickly began to achieve success once word got out that he has the ability to memorize an entire script in less than 24 hours. It was because of this rare gift, productions began to call upon him to replace actors at a moment's notice. As his legend grew, so did his passion for the art. His desire to entertain has been instrumental in his success, giving him the opportunity to share the spotlight with nationally acclaimed talents such as Forrest Whitaker, Vivica A. Fox, Terrence Howard, Kelly Price, Richard Roundtree, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Suzanne Douglass, Clifton Powell, Eddie Griffin, Keisha Knight-Pulliam, Lavan Davis (House of Payne), Terry Vaughn, and Tommy Ford, just to name a few. 

Igniting the stage, Curtis Von has performed in productions such as, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married, Michael Baisden’s Men Cry in the Dark, It’s All in the Family, Bruised But Not Broken, and the critically acclaimed The Diary of Black Men: How Do You Love a Black Woman. Wanting to reach a broader audience, Curtis Von expanded his talent to the big and small screen. Some of his film and television credits include Jason’s Lyric, Triple Cross, Barbershop Blues, Death of a G, and Ali: King of the World. Curtis also expanded his talent internationally, by starring in three Nollywood films, Return of the Exile, Page 36, and the Best Drama Award winning film Pound of Flesh, which he was nominated for Best Lead Actor for at the NAFCA Awards in Beverly Hills, Ca. He presently co-stars in the soon to air International TV Series, Bayou City Kings, as well as the currently running web series, Lyfe’s Poetic Revenge. 

With a wealth of experience and a keen eye for talent, Curtis Von began to focus on directing. He directed Robin Givins and Darius McCrary in Will A Man Rob God? and the late Tommy Ford and Terri Vaughn in, Hell Hath No Fury. He’s currently a Producer on two controversial films, Black Lives: Jurica Road and White Lives: Memorial Drive, both due for release in 2018. Continuing his journey, he founded his production company, “Acting Bad Productions”. With that accomplished, he diversified his talents by writing and producing. His original works include, Only God Can Judge Me, Wake Up Young World, and Just As I Am. “Theatre is a ministry, and to reach at least one individual makes a world of difference.” 

Curtis Von thanks God, his loving family, and supportive friends for all that he has become. One thing is for sure; more will be coming his way. With his relentless determination, perseverance, and confidence, you can expect to hear his name for a long time to come. Wherever there’s Lights, Camera, and Action, chances are, Curtis Von is not far away.
