Harrogate Comedy Festival’s New Act Competition will see a gaggle of fledging comedian’s battle it out for your vote in this battle royale of comedy.  

Don’t miss your chance to come along, cheer on your favourites and support the future of comedy.     

COMPERE: Danny Deegan 
With the confidence and swagger that you might expect of a North-West comedian at the very top of his game, Danny Deegan is a comedian, writer and actor who has become a regular at most of the major comedy clubs in the UK since he began performing in 2003.  
"Charming, witty and most importantly funny"
Metro
 
ACTS
 
Ashley Butterfield
 
Unemployed. Single. Wildcard.
 
Eddie French
 
"Eddie French has been doing stand up for just shy of 4 years. These days he sometimes does it with a guitar. He has gigged all over the country and has spent the last three Augusts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival doing stand up and performing with The Discount Comedy Checkout Improv group. He is still uncomfortable writing about himself in the third person."
 
Cormac Friel

"Cormac is a bit crude for my liking. I cringed from start to finish and didn't know what to say at the end of it." (Cormac's mum)
 
Kieran Lawless
 
Sean Morley
 
Sean Morley is a very polite and thoughtful young man. Allegedly "brilliantly absurd" (Arts in Leicester), offering " bizarre parallels of surrealism and sharp wit" (Forge Press); he denies all of these things in favour of wanting to have a nice chat with everyone about some things that have been preying on his mind.
 
Nigel Needham
 
Nigel is an idiosyncratic act who mixes dark and surreal deadpan humour.  In 2013 Nigel has won Rawhide Raw Liverpool, Beat the Frog in Manchester and Preston, and Chunky's Comedy Clap Off in Bolton.
 
Katy Truelove
 
Newcomer Katy Truelove burst onto the scene in May 2012 and already has a string of appearances under her belt including Theatre Clywd (Silky), The Frog & Bucket Manchester (Laughing Cows), The Stand (Newcastle) and more recently the Haha Hadrians Wall Comedy Charity Walk with Pat Monahan, Michael Redmond & Ian Cognito.
 
Katy's personable and sometimes brutally honest style can both shock & endear the most hardened of audiences.

"Katy puts the true meaning of love into comedy. She bounces around the stage with so much joyness, she should be called Katy Truejoy"  Pat Monahan

Tommy Wilson

Has been on the circuit for just over a year
