Last year at a sold out Udderbelly Southbank Jack Campbell was crowned English Comedian of the year. He won a wad of cash and a month long trip to the Adelaide Fringe in Australia, where he performed to many many sell out audiences.
Since 2006 Alan Anderson of Ha Ha Comedy has been running the annual Scottish Comedian of the Year competition. It has grown to become one of the most prestigious comedy competitions in the UK. With over 900 Glaswegians attending the final, as well as sold out semi finals and heats garnering audiences up to 200 each, it is certainly the best attended comedy competition in the UK.
On Monday 13th July 2015, the 2015 English comedian of the Year will be crowned at London’s Underbelly Southbank.
He or she will win:
£1500 and a trip to Australia’s Adelaide & (hopefully) Perth Fringe Festivals in Late Jan / Feb / March 2015
