Like New Comedian Of The Year, but slightly more jaded…Now in it’s 3rd year Old Comedian of the Year is a competition based at The Museum of Comedy in Bloomsbury. The final will be held at Leicester Square Theatre, in the heart of London's West End.
Forget cheery optimism and skinny jeans. At last, a competition for comics who've been around long enough to know better. Expect a high standard and a hint of world weary cynicism as 100 not-so-new acts compete for the title of Old Comedian Of The Year 2017.
The competition is open to anyone over 35 who has been performing for five years or more, and not making a living from comedy. Entries from character acts, musical acts and sketch groups are welcome. The only restriction is that all contestants must stick to 5 minutes of original material or risk disqualification.
This event is recommended for ages 16+. Please arrive early as latecomers may not be admitted.
