Comedy Reserve Try-Outs 2019

18th Mar 2019 - 19th Mar 2019

StageSpace - Pleasance London



Now in its 15th fantastic year, the Pleasance Comedy Reserve - supported by the Charlie Hartill Special Reserve Fund - showcases the absolute best in brand new comedy talent.

Each year we hand-pick four of the most exciting and original up-and-coming comedians to take with us to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. They'll perform alongside each other in a prime-time slot at the Pleasance throughout August, in a show that has, in past years, helped launch the careers of Jack Whitehall, John Kearns, Simon Brodkin, Roisin Conaty, Daniel Rigby and Holly Walsh. (Plus a whole load more!)

From over a hundred applications, we've put together a truly exceptional shortlist of superb new acts who will be taking to the stage over two consecutive nights with their best seven minutes of material. Performances to be hosted by 2018 Comedy Reserve Recipient Helen Bauer.

And as well as performing in front of a panel of judges from the Pleasance, they'll also be competing for your vote! So come along and vote for your favourites and have your say in who we take with us to the Fringe this summer.

Tickets are only £5.00 each, or you can book both nights together - and see all the shortlisted acts - for just £8.00.
