New Variety Lives is back with the NATYS’ 40th anniversary search for breakthrough comedy and variety acts.

Thousands of acts have auditioned, hundreds have performed, and now we’re looking for the latest dynamic emerging talent.


Think cabaret, clowning, stand-up, drag, music, improv and more. 2022’s most exciting new acts will perform excerpts of material for a panel of judges and a live audience.


Bethany Reardon, CJ Mars, Johnny Tavernier-Campbell, Monique Munroe, Orla Newmark
