The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is on the hunt for Australia’s funniest secondary school peeps for its annual Class Clowns comedy competition.
The Canberra heat will be held at 5pm Thursday 22 March, but contestants are also encouraged to participate below!
Teens in Years 9-12 (or between the ages of 14-18 years old) can now sign up for free to work alongside some of the festival’s finest comic talent, polishing up their own original five minutes of stand- up, sketch or musical comedy for a real live public performance hosted by a professional comedian during Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April 2018.
Participants will battle it out for the prize of $1,500 for themselves and a $1,000 workshop package for their school.
From comedy workshops in schools to a national comedy competition, Class Clowns engages and inspires the young and funny to hone their potential. Last year hundreds of teens participated in Class Clowns with NSW’s Daniel Reeve taking out the National gong.
Past participants include Joel Creasey, Rhys Nicholson, Aaron Chen and Tom Ballard.
Register online at classclowns.com.au to participate.
