Perth’s biggest stand-up comedy competition. Winner flown to perform in New York

Open to new, nervous or experienced comedians. Will be judged on potential, not just a polished act.


First place will receive the following prizes:

  • Return flight to New York with accomodation included;
  • World-class comedy workshop run by a national headliner;
  • The opportunity to perform at some of the world’s most iconic comedy venues.


1. Each comedian will be allowed up to 7 minutes to perform new, original, comedy material at their allocated heat & each heat will also have a crowd-work (a crowd interaction) component. The entire 7 minutes do NOT have to be met, it is however the max,

2. This competition is the first of its kind where there are NO restrictions on content. We believe in the current climate, comedy is being restricted to fit within certain boundaries. So we’re creating a safe, and artistically open channel. NOTE: this isn’t a license to offend, it is however a license to experiment, and be different,

3. Unbiased judging will ensure the winner is the act with the most potential, not just the most polished. Typically three judges from varying experiences per heat, each with high level experience in a related industry, and one judge with specific comedy experience. We will aim to limit any judges with personal relationships with the performers,

4. Performers will be requested to sign a release agreement to allow us to record, distribute, and promote your performance – this is entirely at your discretion. However please note, New York venues will require footage to be seen, sponsors have requested snippets to share on their social media channels, and other avenues will be used which will be in your benefit as free marketing & promotion you don’t have to pay for.

5. New material for finals will be required. Should a comedian progress from the heats into the semi finals, no previous material can be used, and a completely new 5 to 7 minutes will be required.

6. There will be 6 heat rounds followed by semi-finals and a grand final. Heats run every Wednesday, starting on 6th November 2019 and ending 11th December 2019. Purchase your tickets early, as there is limited capacity per heat.
