INTRODUCING OUR Master of Ceremonies, Guest Judge and Closer:
Our celebrity judge, representing the comedy community, is SHULI EGAR! If anyone knows the value of hard work and the pain of bombing in front of audiences to perfect the craft, it’s “Shalom Shuli.” Known as someone who truly hustles, Shuli has traveled the country doing standup, and through his special shows (e.g., Ronnie’s Block Party) became an expert in wrangling new talent on stage and making it entertaining.
His start in stand up began with him bombing every night in nearly empty casinos along the Las Vegas Strip. But in 2002 Shuli’s luck would change when he met radio legend Howard Stern.
Like many on the show, Shuli started as a fan of the Howard Stern Show, but after seven years of weekly calls, he was invited to meet the master in Las Vegas for a poker game. As it happened, he won more than just money gambling at the table that day. Despite having no journalism experience, Shuli was brought on as a correspondent for the Howard 100 News team and has been reporting on all things Howard ever since.
In addition to his work on the Stern Show, Shuli co-hosts The Jay Thomas Show, the Dr. Harry Fisch Show on Sirius XM, and he has contributed to the Scott Ferrall Show and Miserable Men.
SHULI has toured the country as part of “The Killers of Comedy “ and “Ronnie’s Block Party”, and he regularly performs stand-up in clubs all across the U.S.
