Comedy Reserve Try Outs 2020


16th Mar 2020 - 17th Mar 2020

StageSpace - Pleasance London



Now in its 16th 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.

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 favorites and have your say in who we take with us to the Fringe this summer.

Hosted by Josh Jones.
