Gilded Balloon are delighted to be bringing the UK’s longest running comedy newcomer competition back for its 33rd year! After a one-year hiatus, the So You Think You’re Funny? competition will take place online for the first time. This year, the Edinburgh semi-finals will take place online and streamed in partnership with Next Up. Buy tickets now to support some of the newest comics all hosted by some of the competition’s incredible alumni hosts.
“SYTYF was the first competition I entered. I’d been doing stand up for about six months. Getting to the final was probably the most exciting moment of my life.” Rhod Gilbert
“SYTYF provides a thrilling arena for new comedians to compete! The organisation strives to not allow gender, nationalist or industry politics crown the winner!” Reg D Hunter
“The final was the biggest gig I had ever done. Peter Kay hosted it and Russell Howard, Jimmy Carr, Andy Zaltzman and Josie Long were in the final. Winning it definitely gave me the confidence to keep writing the sort of stupid crappy jokes and songs I still do today” David O’Doherty
