New Act of the Year 2012 auditions
Auditions for The New Act of The Year Comedy Showcase and awards will be starting in November and will present the best of emerging talent in the world of comedy this year. Auditions are regularly attended by acts from around the United Kingdom, and aim to give comedians the opportunity to perform at this celebrated industry showcase.
Established in 1982, the New Act of The Year showcase has helped most of the new wave of comedy acts get started on the big stage. Previous finalists include Harry Hill, Stewart Lee, Ardal O’Hanlon, Ronnie Ancona, Alistair McGowan, Alan Davies, Ed Byrne and Russell Brand.
This year’s final held at the Barbican in March was one of the best in recent years, won by razor sharp raconteur David Mills.
