Wollongong's favourite comedian to be decided on October 5th
The comedy event of the year, the grand final of the All Star Comedy Comp, has been announced for October 5th at The Builders Club in Wollongong. The competition, the biggest ever held in Wollongong, has been running since August last year and has now narrowed down to the top nine performers battling it out for a prize of $5000.
Each contestant has minutes stage time in the final, with the audience voting for their favourite act.
MC for the evening is Peter Berner with Anthony Salame the feature act.
The competition has been running at six local venues over the past twelve months. Organiser of the event, Martin Henchion, believes the competition has had a major impact on the quality of comedy in Wollongong. “This year has seen more comedy events and performances than any other year in Wollongong. It allowed comedians a chance to perform and hone their material at a range of venues.”
The All Star Comedy Competition is sponsored by i98 and The Builders Club. The support of the two major sponsors has been critical to the success of the competition according to Martin Henchion. “As soon as i98 and The Builders Club agreed to come on board we knew it was going to be a special year. Having i98 advertising new venues made the whole venture feasible. And the Builders Club is the birthplace of comedy in Wollongong.”
Tickets are $20 online or for $25 at the door.
