Riverside and Melbourne International Comedy Festival present
CLASS CLOWNS 2020 – NSW STATE FINAL
Class Clowns is Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s one-of-a-kind, national comedy competition for teenagers in secondary schools.
Many past participants have gone on to have successful comedy careers as solo stand-up performers, in sketch comedy groups, as writers for prime time television and as producers and directors. Josh Thomas, Tom Ballard, Joel Creasey, Lauren Duong and YouTube superstar Neel Kolhatkar just to name a few!
The Class Clowns competition encourages teens aged 14 to 18 with a talent for comedy to unleash their comic voice. This can be through stand-up, sketch or musical comedy – any format goes as long as it is between 3 and 5 minutes long!
In 2020, the Sydney heat will be at ARA Darling Quarter Theatre on Thursday 27 February. Successful participants will go on to perform in the NSW State Final at Riverside and from there, the winners go through to the National Grand Final held at the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April 2020 to battle it out for a chance to win a prize package of $2,500.
