The Amused Moose Comedy Awards 2016, which searches for the best comedy shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from up-and-coming talent, is open for entries. If you think you’re in with a shot, you have until the 7 August to put your show forward.
To qualify for entry, shows must be listed in the comedy section of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe programme for at least 18 dates, and must not have won or been nominated for any other major comedy award.
Entries from shows featuring more than one performer are welcomed as long as the cast does not change. To enter you’ll need to upload a filmed preview of your show before the deadline (midnight, 7 August).
Previous winners include Tony Law, Marcel Lucont, Jess Robinson and Richard Gadd. Here’s 2014 winner Celia Pacquola in action.
Ten shows will be shortlisted by what the organisers call an “illustrious comedy industry panel”, with a Grand Final taking place at The Space at Symposium Hall in Edinburgh on Sunday 21 August 2016.
