Amused Moose Comedy's NATIONAL NEW COMIC AWARD 2020: 
Semi-final 7, hosted by MARKUS BIRDMAN

Socially distanced event, with face-covering required when not seated

Tonight you, alongside comedy industry experts, vote for six very entertaining semifinalists onstage in the first of two Wildcard rounds at London's Water Rats, who have already won through from hundreds in two previous rounds, hosted by MARKUS BIRDMAN, plus guest appearance by a previous finalist

These six semifinalists Cerys Bradley, Jack Hester, Lorraine Hoodless, Paul Aitchison, Runi Talwar and Sachin Kumarandran need your votes to set them on their way to the Final where finalists battle for fame and a shiny moose trophy, previously won by Jack Whitehall, Sarah Millican and Rob Beckett, with finalists including Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Katherine Ryan, Jimmy Carr and Greg Davies.
