Presented by City of Stirling

The launching pad for WA’s best new comedian

Tickets: From $24.50 + b/fee

About This Show

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)

THE PRIZE?

• $1500 inc GST Prize money on behalf of the City of Stirling to help you with your comedy career and professional development
• A $150 inc GST 5-minute showcase spot at a future WA Comedy All-Stars show alongside Western Australia’s finest Stand-up Comedians.
