ABOUT NEXT GEN COMEDY

The City of Stirling and WA Comedy are searching for WA’s best new comedian.
The event to decide this, Next Gen Comedy is based on audience vote, meaning we’re leaving it up to the people to decide who is the best in the West.

“Winning Next Gen was definitely one of the launching pads of my comedy career, not only did it place me on a larger platform with double the crowd to showcase my talent but it also gave me a mental leap, which made me believe anything is possible from here”

 

–  Joe White (2016 Next gen comedy winner)
