The search is on for Australia’s funniest teens!
Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s one-of-a-kind national comedy competition for young people is back!
Open to teens aged 14-18 (Years 9-12), we’re on the look-out for the next generation of funny people. It’s free to enter, and all you need is a 3-5 minute original act in any style of comedy.
Events start with a 2-hour workshop, where teens rehearse and refine their act with the help of a professional comedian, followed by the opportunity to perform for a live audience.
Selected comedians go on to compete in state finals, with the winners invited to participate in the National Grand Final as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, vying for the chance to win a cash prize of $1,500, and a comedy workshop package for their school.
For over two decades, Class Clowns has helped hundreds of funny, young peeps hone their comedy potential. Past participants like Joel Creasey, Annie Louey, Rhys Nicholson, Aaron Chen and William McKenna have gone on to have a career in showbiz.
