This year the Awards were opened up to global entries and 10 acts will compete live on stage, including international performers, for the coveted Stage Award. The show will be hosted by 2015 winner, Jayde Adams, and include a headline performance from last year’s ‘lockdown’ winner, Izzy Askwith. It’s set to be a great show with Awards also being presented for Comedy Writing, Comedy Shorts, Content Creator, and the industry award for Best Comedy Writer.
