Entries are now open to register for comedy’s ultimate high-wire, Australia’s largest and most prestigious open mic, the annual RAW Comedy competition.
The annual RAW Comedy competition will see the nation’s bravest and boldest new performers take to the stage to test their skill and stamina with five minutes of new, original comedy material – stand-up, sketch, double and triple acts and musical comedy are all welcome. It’s comedy with no fear and no safety net, just exhilaration and adulation ahead!
State-wide heats will kick off in January before the best of the best battle it out at the National Grand Final during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April 2018. The winner will be laughing all the way to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where they’ll have a chance to compete in So You Think You’re Funny? in August 2018.
Open to competitors aged 17+ years, past RAW competitors include Tom Ballard, Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Celia Pacquola and Luke McGregor.
