After entries close in mid-January, the highest scoring 80 will perform live in quarter finals and then semi finals on Saturdays and Sundays in February and March, hosted by Mark Dolan, at the Amused Moose SohoHo! venue in central London, with the final taking place during the Edinburgh Fringe in August.

Uniquely all the audiences vote, as well as those of our industry panel, during all live rounds of the competition.

As well as all the finalists being given the perfect platform from which to launch their comedy career, the winner of the Amused Moose National New Comic title will also receive a shiny trophy, with the opportunity to perform as part of Amused Moose Comedy’s Awardwinners Showcases which traditionally takes place in October in London, to which those comedy scouts and industry who have been unable to see them onstage recently, are invited.
