Semi-Final Line-Ups Announced!

After ten heats of our new act competition Get-Up, Stand-Up, the 120 acts who qualified for those heats have been whittled down to 36 for the three November semi-finals (see line-ups below). Each act will perform their best 5 minute set and three from each will go through to the final.

Big thanks to professional comedians Mike Gunn, Mark Simmons, Susan Murray, Amir Khoshsokhan and Ben Clover for their judging prowess during the heats. We think professional comedians are best-placed to judge comedy and that ethos will continue in the semi-finals and the final where we have Mike Gunn, Mark Simmons, Lost Voice Guy and the legendary Bobby Davro lined up already, with more to be confirmed…

So here are the semi-final lineups, all being held at The Stand-Up Club in Piccadilly. Tickets are £5 in advance, £7 on the door…

Each heat is a great chance to see 12 upcoming acts do short sets, so please come and support them and have your say too, as 20% of the score is down to audience reaction and a vote.
