NEW YORK, NY - HBO Latino in partnership with the New York Latino Film Festival (NYLFF), the nation's premier Latino film festival, are excited to launch the Latinos Stand-Up competition in search of the best Latino stand-up comedians around the country. The competition is designed to support emerging talent and increase awareness and representation of Latino voices in the comedy industry. The top five comedians will perform, and one winner will be chosen at a live event on Friday, August 16th at the New York Latino Film Festival. The event will be hosted by actress, comedian and writer Gina Brill n. I'm excited to partner with NYLFF and HBO Latino in supporting our culture! As Latinos we love to laugh and make others laugh, said Gina. When I was 17, I got my first break at a local stand-up comedy contest and haven't looked back since. I encourage everyone to enter and take advantage of this great opportunity to represent Latin comedic talent.

The chosen comic will have the opportunity to appear in one of HBO Latino's upcoming comedy specials, Entre Nos.' HBO has been proudly supporting the New York Latino Film Festival for the past 16 years, said Lucinda Martinez, Senior Vice President of Multicultural and International Marketing, HBO. We are thrilled to be able to open doors and provide a much-needed platform to unique groundbreaking comedic talent.

It's truly exciting to partner on the Latinos Stand-Up competition to recognize and advance comedic talent. Were proud of our continued growth and status as a leading identifier for fresh and emerging creatives in film, television and social media. This partnership further broadens our influence of being on the pulse of discovering Latino talent, said Calixto Chinchilla, Founder and Executive Director of the New York Latino Film Festival.

Gina Brillon - Actress, comedian, and writer, Gina Brill n was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. She's been a standup comic since she was 17-years-old and is the first, and only, Latina winner of NBC's 2012 Stand up for Diversity Showcase. She was also selected to be part of Montreal's Just For Laughs New Faces Showcase. Gina is an accomplished singer, published writer, and poet. Her pieces have appeared in the New York Post and Daily News, among others. Her latest comedy special Gina Brill n: Easily Offended premieres on HBO Latino and HBO's digital platforms on Friday, August 16th at 9:30pm ET.
