It's still Comedy Month! And to celebrate, we're giving away tickets to some of the best Comedy gigs in the UK - though, we're not just *giving* them away, you're going to have to earn them. And to earn them, you'll have to slave away over a hot computer coming up with a witty one-liner for our Caption Competition.
To kick things off, we're giving away a pair of tickets to see star of 'The Stephen K. Amos Show'... Stephen K. Amos on his 2011 UK tour. Having made countless TV appearances on hugely successful shows such as Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You as well as Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle and Snuff Box, Stephen is no doubt a familiar face to anyone with even a passing interest in Comedy. His critically acclaimed live show is famed for its audience interaction and "being really, really funny."
As if that weren't enough, "Mr K. Amos" will be joined on his tour by up and coming Stand-Up Joe Rowntree who we've raved about previously following his appearance as part of Dave's One Night Stand. Joe's also a host on long-running science show 'Braniac' and in the past has written withering put-downs for Anne Robinson on the Weakest Link (apologies to anyone who thought she came up with them on the spot.) His act features his own brand of surreal observational comedy that's wowed audiences from London to Dubai.
So that's a good prize, isn't it? In fact, it's probably too good a prize to give away, you're advised to enter quickly before we change our minds...
Here's how to enter:

Perhaps for inspiration you could listen to Lonely Island's song 'Captain Jack Sparrow' whilst gazing into the dark brown eyes of 'The Jester of Tortuga'...
...Then submit your caption in the comment section. One entry per person please - and be sure to leave an email address or sign in via your twitter/facebook account so that we can bestow tickets upon you easily.
If we decide you're the best "Captioneer", we'll contact you with a choice of dates and venues on Stephen's tour.
Get your entries in by Tuesday the 11th of October for a chance of winning - But even if you're unlucky this time, we'll be giving away more tickets to some great acts throughout October so keep an eye on the blog and twitter feed for more Competitions.
