America's Next Top Cult

WED // SEP 25

The only comedy show that might ruin your life!

People are desperate to believe in something bigger than themselves, or really, anything at all that promises to deliver them from these exhausting, trying times. Luckily, one show has the answer.

America’s Next Top Cult is a monthly live comedy competition that lets the audience decide between three cults dreamed up by New York City’s best comedians. It’s like American Idol meets Wild Wild Country, or if Heaven’s Gate had to present their doctrines to the panel of judges on America’s Got Talent.

The winners return for a championship round several months later. The chaos comes to a rousing climax when the best of the best face off in the hopes of being crowned America’s Next Top Cult!

Carmen Lagala
Tim Platt

James Hamilton (Funny or Die)


With Panelists:

Julia Shiplett (2019 Comedy Central’s Up Next)

Rufat Agayev (Caroline’s on Broadway)


And special guest Aliza Kelly, resident astrologer at Cosmopolitan magazine and author of Starring You: A Guided Journey Through Astrology

Hosted by Chuck Armstrong (Funny or Die, The Onion)
