Question Title

* 1.

Any late entries will not be processed.



Thank you for deciding to enter the Amused Moose Comedy's National New Comic awards because you believe you have what it takes to be famous, just the same as Jack Whitehall, Greg Davies, Sarah Millican, Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Seann Walsh, Kevin Bridges, Rob Beckett, Rhod Gilbert and Nina Conti who won through some years ago.

Throughout the Amused Moose Comedy's National New Comic awards the search is focussed on "potential star quality" - in other words for new comedy performers, who have the potential to progress beyond the comedy circuit. 

Entries are open to anyone who 18 or over, from anywhere in the UK and ROI, who matches the entry criteria on

Entries are initially online including a link to a 8-10 minute clip (or two 5 minute clips) of your stand-up, with talentscouts worldwide viewing these and selecting who will go through to a semi-final.  The clip/clips you upload must be of you recently getting laughs onstage at a comedy club.  So film your set/sets if you haven't filmed yourself recently, and edit it/them so they start with you walking up to the mic.  Then upload it to YouTube, Vimeo etc (maybe 'password protected').  The standard of filming is not important - asking someone at a gig to film you on your phone should be fine, provided you can be seen and clearly heard.

You also are asked to select dates when you could do a 10 minute set in London in the semi-final rounds (the semi-final dates include two 'wildcard' dates and it is recommended that you offer at least one of the 'wildcard' dates, as well as at least one of the earlier semi-final dates). 

Comedy industry talentscouts based mainly within 100 miles of London come along to the semi-finals, to vote and ratify the audience votes about who will go through to the final.  At the final in London in June/July or mid-August in Edinburgh (tbc) dozens of comedy industry talentscouts will be there to also vote, and a panel drawn from those will ratify the audience votes about who wins the three trophies.

Before entering it is ESSENTIAL that you read because it includes the entry criteria and terms/condition of entry, plus lots of useful information. 

ENTER AS EARLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (entries close on 14 January) so the panel have maximum time to watch your clip, and also increase your chance of being offered one of your preferred semifinal dates.   If possible do enter before the Christmas break or soon after Christmas.
Having checked the entry elegibility criteria (on the link above), and then have prepared your clip/clips and uploaded it/them, please complete the entry form below:
