About the Competition

The Stand Up & Be Counted Comedy Festival showcases our brightest new comedy talent.

Australia’s most promising new comedians will battle it out in the quest to be crowned our ultimate winner and take out the Grand Prize.

You, the audience, will vote to decide who our next comedy star will be!

The contest runs across 8 weekly heats with  2 semi finals and a Grand Final where the winner will be chosen by you.

Each night the heats will feature 8 comedians battling it out for a spot in the semi finals and ultimately the Grand Final.

To keep the judging transparent there is audience voting.


2018 Festival Dates will be announced soon.

2018 tickets will be available soon.
