Ten rising comedy stars, picked from over one hundred hopefuls, will perform and compete for your votes. You, the audience, are the judges and will vote on the funniest man or woman. At stake is their reputation, your entertainment and of course a cash prize.

This year we have applicants from Romania, Poland, Africa, Canada, Asia, Australia… even Liverpool!

Who will win? You decide.

The Met’s New Comedian of the Year Competition comes from the people who bring you First Thursday Comedy Club.
