Amateur Night, the theater’s signature program, now in its 80th year returns with its 2014 season opening night featuring special guest Hip Hop Legend Doug E. Fresh. During this special Amateur Night, the Apollo will honor Apollo Legend Chuck Jackson by inducting him into the Apollo Walk of Fame. There will also be a special greeting from former Child Stars of Tomorrow contestants, The Main Event.

Since its inception 80 years ago, in 1934, Amateur Night has been one of New York City’s most popular live entertainment experiences, launching the careers of thousands of performers and attracting audiences from all over the world. The Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night has long been revered by artists as a transformative experience where up-and-coming talent feels the power of the legendary performers who have come before them, and where audience response can help make or break a career. Through its partnership with the Coca-Cola Company, Amateur Night was retooled at the beginning of the 2010 season and features several new programmatic elements including theme nights, a DJ Driven pre-show party and expanded auditions.
