As you may be aware, this is an exciting piece of history at Second City. With this new fellowship program instituted, we are delighted to mentor the inaugural group of Bob Curry Fellowship recipients. We received over 140 submissions and auditioned 85 applicants. Thank you to all of the amazing talent who came out to auditions. These decisions were not easy, but we look forward to creating access and opening more doors for talent interested in pursuing a career in comedy!
