The doors will open at 19:00 and the heats will begin at 20:00. Tickets available for only €4 online or €5 on the door.

The first round is split into four / heats in November. There are up to eight+ comedians in each heat. In each heat, comedians are paired off and go head to head against each other performing 5 minutes of material. The winner of each pairing is decided by a panel of our three judges and announced before the next pair compete.
At the end of the night, the judges select two comedians to progress to the final from the pool of comedians who won their pairings. In each of the heats, only two winners will go through to the final. At the end of all four heats, the eight comedians who went through from the heats will compete in the final.In the final, comedians will be paired off and compete head to head performing 10 minutes of material. Our panel of three judges determine the overall winner of the competition selected from the 4 comedians who won their pairings in the final.
The comedians are scored on a scale of 1-10 for stage presence, originality, and audience reaction. Judges’ scores are averaged then to deem the winner! (The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into by the judges in relation to that decision)
All entrants must be available to compete on 30th November, if they progress to the final heat.
May the Best Comic Win!
