A star is born...!!
We’ve been very fortunate to have an abundance of talented stars grace our intimate little stage here at 2Northdown. Most recently Frank Skinner, Mae Martin, Phil Wang, Jessie Cave, Adam Buxton, Russell Howard and Tom Rosenthal to name a few but… come MONDAY we’ll be introducing the stars of tomorrow with the start of our New Act Competition!! Eeeeeekk!
That’s right next Monday 3rd of December marks the beginning of our weekly competition with each show taking place every Monday for the rest of December and running right through to the new year with the Grand Final taking place in February 2019. Oh, it’s going to FUN, the competition has been open to all genres of comedy, with sketch, character and alternative acts being encouraged to apply. The applicants have been handpicked with equal representation being of the utmost importance, so you can expect a mix of varied lols, with something to hopefully tickle everyone’s fancy.
Tickets are a mere £3.00. The heats will comprise of 5-minute slots from 20 budding new acts, so it’s a jam-packed show full to brim with talented hopefuls. There will be a guest judging panel each week consisting of industry professionals who will offer their expert eyes, constructive feedback and have the power to make or break dreams (too much? Ok…). However, that’s not all, there will be a Wild Card round giving audiences the chance to vote for your favourite act that you think deserve another shot. Who doesn’t love a bit of audience engagement, hey?! Have your say and get behind your favourite act!
We’re super excited, can you tell?! The hope is to bolster the most enthusiastic, undiscovered comedic talents of tomorrow and put on a cracking show. Come and join us, it’s going to be a fun, friendly atmosphere and hugely entertaining as we search for the NEXT. BIG. THING.
