THE SEARCH IS ON FOR AUSTRALIA’S FUNNIEST TEENS!!!

Each year hundreds of secondary school students from Years 9-12 participate in the Class Clowns competition across the country – discovering or refining their skills in writing and performing comedy and taking it outside of the classroom to a wider audience. Registrations are now open for Class Clowns 2020! So if you’re aged 14-18 and have a stand-up, sketch, physical or musical comedy act we want you! THE RULES:
  • Open to all Australian secondary students in Years 9-12 or 14-18 years old
  • 3-5 minute time limit for acts
  • Up to 3 people in an act
  • Routines should be original, well-rehearsed, avoid the offensive, and funny!
  • Any style of comedy is welcome. Sketch acts, stand up, physical, musical… or anything in between!
HOW IT WORKS:
  • Heats around the country during February/March start with a 2-hour workshop/rehearsal with a professional comedian to help polish your act.
  • Then the show kicks off with our comedian as MC (audience most welcome and actively encouraged!). Entrants are selected by guest judges to go through to State Finals.
State Final winners are transported to the National Grand Final in Melbourne during the high-profile hijinks that is the Melbourne International Comedy Festival – for a chance to win $1,500 for yourself and a $1,000 workshop package for your school.
