So You Think You Are Funny? Rules for 2015

  • The performer cannot have performed stand up REGULARLY either paid or unpaid before 1st June 2014. *
  • The performer should not have appeared in So You Think You’re Funny? before.
  • The performer’s material must be completely original.
  • The performer must have at least 8 minutes of original material.
  • The organisers reserve the right to select all entrants and decisions taken by the organisers and judges are final.
  • All entrants must be aged 18 and over.

*This means you can have performed, either paid or unpaid before June 2014, but not regularly. So a handful of gigs well spaced out, once or twice, every couple of months is fine, but performing 2 times a week is too many. The exception to this is those who have performed as part of a recognised comedy course in this period.
