Hottest new names in comedy battle for £250
COMEDIANS will vie for a £250 cash prize at The Willow Festival’s Comedy Within Tent arena.
Organised by The Evening Telegraph’s cartoonist John Elson, and sponsored by Macintyre Hudson Accountants, ten comics will compete for the money on Saturday and Sunday.
John said: “If you go to the festival then make sure you catch Comedy Within Tent. The comedians are all fairly new to the stand-up world and many of them are from our region. The winner will be decided by an independent panel of locally known judges.”
As well as the newcomers, there will be a headline comedian each night – John Ryan on Saturday and Gary Delaney (pictured) on Sunday. The comedy starts at 8pm on both nights.
