October is Comedy Month... Welcome to Comedy Month!

October 01, 2011



Ah ha ha ha ha! Oh, I'm sorry, you've caught me laughing at the very prospect of The Funniest Month of the Year; Sternberg Clarke's Comedy Month. In association with The Next Big Thing Competition  we'll be celebrating all things rib tickling in Entertainment throughout October. Whether that's big name comedians, undiscovered comedy gems, funny songs, funny videos and generally anything that makes us giggle.

But why? You might ask. And we would answer. Firstly, it's because we'd like to see more comedy at corporate events - whether that's in the form of stand up, musical comedy or weird and wonderful cabaret acts. We want to give the best comedy acts in the UK the chance to get out in front of some of the biggest names in the event industry and make them laugh. Secondly, we're looking for comedy entrants to this year's Next Big Thing Competition so we'll be eagerly searching for new talent to go head to head with the UKs best unsigned entertainment acts. And thirdly, we could all do with a laugh.

We'll be looking for your best jokes, songs, saucy-limericks, tortuous puns and videos of people falling into things; we'll even be holding competitions for the sharpest and wittiest of our blog readers and giving away tickets to see some of the funniest comedians on the UK comedy circuit. There'll also be guest blogs and plenty of video content to show our commitment to Comedy.

Last but not least, we'll be holding a comedy showcase event at the end of the month featuring unsigned amateurs and seasoned professionals performing for Event Industry Luminaries and comedy lovers. We'll keep you posted as to dates, times and venues.

So if you've got a comedy act that you'd like to be featured on our Blog this month - now's the time to come in and audition or send us your videos/pictures/soundclips to be considered for our showcase.

Make sure you're following us on twitter for more info and keep an eye on the hashtag  #NBTComedy to keep updated on the latest goings on in comedy month.
