Comedians wanted

WANNABE comedians are being invited to battle for laughs.

The second annual Comedy Cellar Best New Yorkshire Act is looking for some new local laughter mongers to try their hand at stand-up.

Nine acts compete for the illustrious title with the winner striding off with a glorious trophy, £100 and a contract of paid gigs on the national comedy circuit.

This year’s show takes place on Thursday, September 13, at Lawrence Batley Theatre in the Syngenta Cellar.

Last year’s show was a great night with a capacity crowd and was a fabulous experience for all the performers.

This year promises to be just as kick-ass. Any interested would-be wits need to send a cd, dvd or cassette (if you are technologically repressed) of five minutes worth of material to: Comedy Cellar Best New Yorkshire Act, Lawrence Batley Theatre, Queen Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2SP.

Alternatively you can email it (or a YouTube link) to

The closing date is Monday, August 13, so hurry up and get your hilarity honed!
