Students and Comedy

The National student comedy awards headed by the leading comedy website Chortle.co.uk are holding heats in Manchester on Monday 27th of February at Fallowfield's XS Malarkey bar. It's an opportunity for any up and coming student comedian to perform and be in with a chance of being crowned Britain's best student comedian.

Where better to hold the heats than XS Malarkey? Formerly known as Murphy's Malarkey, it's been voted the best comedy club in the North West by Chortle.co.uk three years running. The venue is a popular local hot spot for anyone looking to get into the highly competitive stand up circuit. Even if you're not much of a comedian yourself it's worth getting down there to check out some of the action, although an early arrival is advised if you want a seat.

The competition is already in its third year and it's the ideal launch pad for any new comic, as proved by the previous two winners who are now both regular stand up performers. Nathan Caton who was last year's winner said: 'Winning the competition last year was a great achievement. It opened a few doors for me, I was getting more recognition from comedy clubs and got a few TV people interested, not to mention the whole experience was amazing.'

As well as the obvious prize of been recognised as Britain's best student comedian, the winner will also receive a nice cash prize, a trip to Edinburgh festival and a number of gigs. On top of that the winner will also get the chance to perform at the prestigious Comedy Store, renowned for its reputation for discovering, producing and promoting the finest in comedy talent. Comics such as Rik Mayall, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French and Jack Dee have all graced the stage of the Comedy Store. It's most certainly a prize worth winning for any true comic.

The competition starts at 8:30pm on the Monday and entrance is a measly £2 for members and £4 for non-members, with a lifetime membership costing as little as £6. For that price there's really no reason not to go, even if it's just to watch.
