Entries for the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2014 are now open

Heats for the 2014 competition run from August through to the end of October in London, Edinburgh, Brighton, Manchester and Cambridge - with semi-finals in London at the start of November and the big final on November 30th.

This competition is a comedians chance to follow in the footsteps of many top name comedians, who cut their comedy teeth in this competition and where discovered by performing in it. We've been finding the best in new UK comedy since 2001 - Greg Davies won the competition on his fourth ever gig, Russell Kane won it in the first six months when he was starting out, and the list of previous winners and finalists includes these, Jack Whitehall, Rhod Gilbert, Daniel Rigby, Nina Conti, Imran Yusuf, Marek Larwood, Steve Hall, Matt Kirshen, Carl Donnelley and many, many more.

In 2014 we have moved the competition later in the year, and we have total prizes worth over 2,500 - and this includes a winners cheque for 1,000, plus paid work, trophies, runners-up prizes and a lot of exposure in the comedy industry.

Heats ran around the country from August until October, followed by the semi-finals in early November.

The grand final this year will be held at The Dogstar in Brixton, on Sunday November 30th 2014 - where the top acts will be judged by a panel of industry experts, in front of an audience that will also sees a big chunk of the comedy industry in attendance.
