Entries, in the form of a 90-second performance clip filmed in a comedy venue, must be submitted online by the end of March 2015.
This innovative process ensures that the Laugh Off entrants will all be seen by a substantial number of comedy industry professionals including agents, managers, promoters, bookers, producers, critics and PRs in Australia, Canada and the USA as well as here in the UK – making this competition an even more effective way for new comedy talent to get spotted and get their career off to a flying start!
Live quarter and semi- finals will be held in London throughout May and June with the final, featuring a celebrity host, taking place on 9th August as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Audience votes, as well as those of our industry panel, will be taken into account during all live rounds of the competition.
