Not So New Comedian of the Year
So you still think you're funny?
Forget cheery optimism & skinny jeans. At last, a competition for comics who've been around long enough to know better. Expect a high standard and a hint of world weary cynicism as 100 not so new acts compete for the title of Not so New Comedian of the Year.
The competition is open to anyone over 35 who has been performing for 5 years or more, and not making a living from comedy. Entries from character acts, musical acts and sketch groups are welcome. The only restriction is that all contestants must stick to 5 minutes of original material or risk disqualification.
From the people who brought you New Comedian of the Year, but slightly more jaded…
