Vote alongside international comedy cognoscenti for your favourites who will battle it out for glory, fame and a shiny moose trophy, hoping to emulate previous winners Marcel Lucont, Richard Gadd, The Kagools, Celia Pacquola, Tony Law and in 2018 Tania Edwards.

Talentscouts around the world view online hundreds of entries by relative unknowns to select the most entertaining and exciting, and then comedy industry panellists at the Edinburgh Fringe watch those shows live before together choosing the most outstanding to be in the Grand Final.

Edinburgh Fringe venue 27.  The postcode EH1 2QA

Located in Edinburgh historic Old Town, the Grassmarket Centre is adjacent to Greyfriars Kirk, being at the top (west) end of Cowgate and at its junction with Candlemaker Row.

(If it helps, because this is in the part of Edinburgh which is at two levels, the venue is almost below George IV Bridge).

There is a Just The Tonic box office (linked to the Fringe box office) open at the venue until 11pm, plus a cafe and bar open until 3am.
