This penultimate heat is a chance to see some of the UK’s top rising comedy stars in the UK’s most unusual comedy venue, the historic Fort Luton. There will be a judging panel of industry professionals, but audience reaction will account for 25% of each act’s vote.
Competing on 17 th May will be, Davina Bentley, Steve Best, Julius Howe, Leo Kearse, Nicholas Lepanto, Wilson Milton, Jon Pearson, Faye Treacy and David Ward.
Says Head of Much Laughter CIC, Sharon Jackson: ‘All our Medway comedy nights are special to us, but we’re very excited about this one, especially with the audience playing an active part in the judging.’
Early booking is advised as this is sure to be a very popular event.
