The team at Black Tiles are delighted to be one of the comedy clubs hosting a heat of the brand new British Comedian of the Year competition, which is open to all comedians ranging from acts with TV credits to young upstarts making their name in the industry.
Sixteen heats around the country will see 144 comics vying for a place in the semi-finals and the Grand Final, where one of them will not only be crowned British Comedian of the Year but will also receive a whopping £10,001 – the biggest cash prize in UK comedy. There are no prizes for second, it’s winner-takes-all. Comedians in the heats have already been successfully selected from a huge amount of entrants, so you will get to see a fantastic mix of established headliners, professional acts and rising stars all on one night.
Each heat will see nine acts performing their best 10 minute set, with the top two qualifying for the semi-finals. Acts will not only have to impress the judging panel at each heat, they will need to win over the audience who get the chance to vote for their favourites, with their votes counting towards the final scores on the night. With great power comes great responsibility!
Tickets on sale now £10.
March 29th Doors open at 7pm. 7.30pm show time.
