Ever imagine cracking jokes where Tina Fey once stood? Think you’re funny enough to follow in Steve Carell’s footsteps? PUMA and The Second City’s Outreach and Diversity Program are seeking fresh talent to apply for The PUMA “LOL” Scholarship. Created as part of an effort to increase diversity among the improv community, the scholarship will provide five budding comedians in both Chicago and LA with one year’s worth of training through Second City, the world’s premier comedy theatre and school of improvisation. The Second City is credited with launching the careers of comedians like Fey and Carell, as well as John Belushi, Mike Myers, and Bill Murray and through The PUMA “LOL” Scholarship, PUMA and The Second City hope to unleash the talents and potentially ignite the careers of the genre’s new rising stars.
All are encouraged to apply for a coveted spot on the PUMA Select Improv troupe. If you think you have what it takes, visit www.puma.com/secondcity to download the application and return it to your nearest PUMA store location by 3/26/2010. For store locations, visit www.puma.com.
