Amused Moose Finalists

So, the final of the Amused Moose Comedy Award will take place this very Sunday at theSpace @ Symposium Hall. Why are we telling you now? Well, because the ten comedians who will compete for the prize have been announced.

As Fringe regulars may remember, these are Amused Moose’s breakthrough awards, focused not on brand new talent, but celebrating comedians already staging full one-hour shows but yet to win another major comedy prize.

An industry panel reviews all eligible shows that are running for at least fifteen performances at the Festival, and these are the ten finalists (and their respective shows) who will compete for the overall prize on Sunday at 1.15pm. Well done one and all.
