Complaint / review text:
I read another report on the LA Comedy Awards and it made me feel inclined to have to chime in. The whole awards like the other person said is a giant scam.
There is NO real awards. You have to purchase your awards. Max Worthington calls is 'sponsorship', but in fact he gives the awards to EVERYONE. Ask people around hollywood and they've all been given this stupid xeroxed award in a dime store frame and told they've been nominated. Then once the awards come around you're told if you want to participate you have to pay $. He keeps changing the terms in which you have to pay to sound more like it's real and sponsorship, but it's simply not.
He takes advantage of up and coming comedians looking for a break with promises of glory and a big awards shows. Most of his shows are 'bringer' shows at bars, and if you bring people, you get nominated and get to perform.
The other person was right. The big stars names that he attaches to the awards have NOTHING to do with the awards and just happen to be around when he had a camera and an award in his trunk of his car to give them for photo opp.
STAY AWAY from this awards. It's a joke. And so is he. And again, i agree, very very very wrong for taking advantage of new comedians trying to get a break.
