New Act Competition Heat One!

Thanks so much to everyone that came down for HEAT ONE of our new act competition at The Woodstock last week!

A packed Woodstock!

It was a sell out show with standing room only and the quality on display was quite superb! Described as ‘Too cheap – that should have been more than £5!’ and ‘The most fun I have had with my clothes on!’ by audience members!



RYAN KENNY & JACK ELBA went through!

Only two acts could progress and after deliberation RYAN KENNY and JACK ABELA went through to the final! Congratulations! Thanks also to MC CHRIS BROOKER and guest headliner RED REDMOND.



Heat Two takes place on Sunday 8th March at The Albert Club and looks like being equally busy! Get your tickets TODAY and come and see a great show, whilst supporting new-ish comedians! You wont regret it.
