In the spirit of the new age of the internet, Acappella Productions, the New York Underground Comedy Festival promoter of South Africa, launched a revolutionary USA-wide video audition in August 2007, encouraging comics to submit one video with their best stand-up material to be judged by a local panel of experts.
