Finalists named in Manford’s new act competition

Ten vie for £1,000 prize

The finalists have been announced in the new act of the year competition run by  Manford’s Comedy Club.

More than 200 hopefuls applied, who have now been whittled down to the final ten:  Evaldas Karosas, Sian Davies, Dave Bawden, Matt Bragg, Horatio Gould, Usama Khan, Liam O’Brien, Sachin David Kumarendran, Carla Pol and Charlie Hopkinson.

Jason Manford – who will host the final on Sunday June 30 at the Northwich Memorial Hall – said: ‘One of the best things about having comedy clubs across the UK is that I get to see all the new exciting acts coming through the ranks.  This competition will enable us to give these new acts a bigger leg up. It’s going to be a great evening with some fantastic comedy.’

The winner will take home £1,000, spots at the clubs and a guest appearance on Manford’s Sunday morning Absolute Radio show.
