We are delighted to announce a brand new competition, “GET-UP, STAND-UP”, aimed at finding the next stars of the live comedy circuit. The Stand-Up Club already curate the “£10,001 Petfringe Comedian Of The Year” competition, which attracts some of the top acts in the country, so this competition is a chance for newer acts to get in on the action and make a name for themselves.
Our main aim is to champion acts who are the funniest and who arguably have the best chance of succeeding on the live circuit. The competition is judged primarily by professional comedians who are out there making people laugh at clubs around the UK and beyond, making them the most qualified people to judge a comedy competition.
