Registrations for RAW Comedy, Australia’s largest and most prestigious open mic comedy competition are now open, allowing candidates to launch into LOLs and take the brave leap into comedy! Entertaining tricks and techniques are tested on the RAW Comedy stage, as passionate comedy athletes hone their skills and stamina. It’s comedy with no fear and no safety net - and all competitors need is enthusiasm, a sense of adventure and a joke or two.
Melbourne International Comedy Festival has been presenting RAW Comedy for 23 years with thousands of performers riding that comedy wave at heats across the country. State and Territory-wide events kick off in January 2019 before the best battle it out in finals around the country and then the very best head to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the RAW Comedy National Grand Final in April 2019. The winner will be laughing all the way to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where they’ll have a chance to compete in the So You Think You’re Funny? comedy competition.
RAW Comedy is open to competitors aged 17+ years and past competitors have included Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Celia Pacquola, Anne Edmonds, Luke McGregor and Matt Okine.
