Eyes on the prize...
New stand-up contest has a £20k pot
A new comedy competition has been launched with one of the biggest prize funds in stand-up.
The winner of the Ha Ha Club Comedian of the Year title takes home £5,000 – but with cash for the winners of heats, regional finals, as well as guaranteed paid work, the total prize pot is more than £20,000.
It is open to acts of every level of experience, while the prizes have been funded by sponsorship from Swedish cider Rekorderlig. Winners of each heat take home £100 and two paid gigs.
Entries are open now, with heats starting in October, regional finals early next year, and the final at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe. Visit hahacomedyclubs.co.uk to enter.
