Robert Powell III, 2012's Next All Star winner, hosts basketball player-turned-funnyman Shaquille O'Neal's four-day competition. Shaq is looking for his new favorite stand-up comedian -- and he's giving you a chance to watch the auditions. For the last seven years, Shaq has been producing his All Star Comedy Jam, a tour and series of Showtime specials featuring the hottest names in urban entertainment (Kevin Hart, Tommy Davidson, Aries Spears, Mo'Nique). Now, he's sending the brand to Texas in the hopes of finding the next comedian worthy of being on his career-making All Star tour. Learn More

He took himself a little too seriously; which I realize is somewhat an oxymoron. But, more than once, he assumed the audience "didn't get it" because the bit was too cerebral. It just wasn't LOL funny. He's cute & amusing, though.
In general, Ryan Stout loves to explore morally repugnant subject matter with smart and sterile objectivity. His exaggerated honesty, delightful insincerity and cute self-righteousness sell his wickedly witty material. No matter what the topic, this suit clad comic appeals to everyone’s sense of logic. And to assure his brand of “offensive humor” stays on an intellectual level, he tries to keep swear words out of his act. Oh, he’ll talk about genocide and abortion, but it won’t be filthy.
While still in college, Ryan was already performing over 300 shows per year when he won the Boston International Comedy Festival’s stand-up comedy competition. Since then, he has appeared at TBS’sThe Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the prestigious Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada.
After making his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” he hosted numerous shows and specials for MTV, including “MTV’s Spring Break,” a snarky pop culture clip show called “MTV’s Ranked” and the reunion episodes for several of America’s favorite reality shows. (He also hosted five — yeah, FIVE — different game shows for MTV, none of which ever made the air.) In addition, he has become an increasingly regular guest on E!‘s “Chelsea Lately” and WGN’s “The Bob & Tom Show,” and stars in his own “Comedy Central Presents” half-hour stand-up special.
