Competition: Win Alternative Comedy Experience DVDs

If you like stand-up comedy Beyond The Joke has a treat for you. We have three copies of the DVD of series one of Comedy Central's The Alternative Comedy Experience to give away. The series was transmitted earlier this year and was acclaimed as an antidote to the shiny floor stand-up of Live at the Apollo. Comedy guru Stewart Lee was involved in selecting the acts and he appears on the DVD interviewing acts backstage at The Stand Club in Edinburgh where the series was filmed.

Among those featured on the two disc set are Tony Law, Simon Munnery, Glenn Wool, David O'Doherty, Josie Long and this year's Foster's Award winner Bridget Christie. As well as the episodes that were broadcast the DVD also includes 60 minutes of ‘uncut’ full-length performances and interviews, plus a 36-page souvenir brochure written by Stewart Lee.

To win a copy of the DVD simply sign up to the beyondthejoke newsletter on the right on the beyondthejoke home page and email the answer to the following question to [email protected]

Who was Stewart Lee's partner when he was in a famous double act?


The closing date for the competition is 11pm on Sunday, November 17 and the winners will be informed by 11pm on Monday, November 18.

The Alternative Comedy Experience returns in Spring 2014. The DVD is released on November 18. If you don't win it you can order it here
