Complaint Review: L.A. Comedy Awards - Los Angeles California
L.A. Comedy Awards Los Angeles Comedy Awards, New York Comedy Awards, NY Comedy Awards, Max Worthington LA Comedy Awards scams hard working comedians Los Angeles, California
*General Comment: LA Comedy Awards is Great!
Max Worthington and the LA Comedy Awards is a complete lie and misrepresentation. It is not an "awards" show. There is no governing body who "chooses" the award. The "winners" buy those slots.
If comedians want to be nominated for a category, Max asks for $150. He says that amount helps to pay for their marketing. But, all they get is a Facebook mention and a piece of paper that says they've been nominated. He lets his nominees perform, but limits them if he thinks they can't bring an audience.
If those nominees want to win, Max asks for between $1,000 and $5,000. In turn they get a plaque that says they've won and a mention on the LA Comedy Awards Facebook page.
The LA Comedy Awards offer Celebrity Achievement awards and Mega Star awards to comedians that Max solely chooses based on his own perceived value - like David Spade, Mel Gibson, Jay Leno and Rick Overton. These big name comedians pay for nothing. It's the hard working, struggling comedians who pay for this whole scam. Max just uses these big name comedians to draw in an audience and create this fake image that this is some great awards show.
For any amount that has been paid, comedians should align their expectations. Expect to be part of a lie, expect to be taken advantage of, expect to get very little out of this, and expect Max Worthington to ask for more money.
Max Worthington and the LA Comedy Awards takes advantage of the poor comedians by taking their money and making false promises, and Max takes advantage of the famous comedians by connecting the LA Comedy Awards to their names even though they have nothing to do with the LA Comedy Awards.
