20th December 2018
After 10 heats and three semi-finals (plus over 200 acts who didn’t manage to make the heat stage), we have our eleven finalists who will be battling it out on Saturday 29 December at The Stand-Up Club in Piccadilly.
Each heat has been judged by a headline-quality professional comedian, who better qualified to judge comedy than people who do it at the top level themselves! We were lucky enough to have the services of Mike Gunn, Bobby Davro, Mark Simmons, Charmian Hughes and Susan Murray amongst others as our pro judges over the 13 weeks of the competition so far, all helped by the audience votes and co-panelists.
Each act will perform 7 minutes of their best material and the winner will be judged on writing, performance/delivery, audience reaction and judge’s enjoyment/appreciation of the set. The winner of the final will receive £500 cash in crisp, red, genuinely-not-fake £50 notes plus £500 worth of gigs on our professional weekend club nights in 2019. So which funny people are the contenders…
