Open Call For Comedy Submissions 2014 - Submissions Now Closed

We're launching a new submission strand - Stand Up Comedy.  This showcase will take place at one of our established showcase venues with an invited industry audience as well as being open to goNORTH delegates and the general public. Each successful submission will get a 10 minute slot.

Do you think your funny? Reckon you could get up on stage and make us laugh? Are you serious about your talent and want to perform for an industry audience? We would love to hear from you and support your comic aspirations.
