Comedy Launchpad Competition

Comedy Launchpad Competition

Introducing… Komedia Bath’s first annual Comedy Launchpad competition!

We’ve teamed-up with Saddlegoose Comedy to search for the best new comic talent that Bath and the surrounding area has to offer!  If you’re funny and not doing regular paid gigs, we want you to take part!

Each heat will be judged in part by audience vote, and in part by the editorial team of The Independent Comedy Appreciation Society magazine in conjunction with Saddlegoose Comedy. We’ll also have a performance from comic pro, fresh from a critically acclaimed run at Edinburgh, to round-off each heat.


Entries will close on 1 January 2019 and you can sign up HERE 

The competition will run every Sunday from the 13th of January to the final on the 10th of February 2019 in the Komedia Bath Arts Cafe, so if you’re entering please make sure you’re available for at least one of the heats and the final!

You’ll be notified by the 5th of January if you’ve got a place in the heats.

The Prizes:

Our top prize will be a PAID slot at our flagship Saturday night comedy club, Krater to launch our winner onto the comedy circuit.

Runners up will receive a ‘Badge(r) of Honour’ accreditation for their comedy CV (which is our way of saying we think you’re one to watch, and you can whack that on your flyers when you head up to Edinburgh, or use as a credit when applying for gigs) as well as some other top secret prizes.

The Rules:

  • To enter you must NOT be a professional comic who performs regular paid gigs. If you’re just entering the scene and you’ve managed to bag a paid slot or two that’s absolutely fine, but remember – the competition is designed to celebrate NEW talent.
  • Entrants must be aged 18+.

Entrants and audience members must be aged 18 or over. 

Doors are at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. 

Seats are in unallocated theatre style rows and are first come, first served.
