Submissions have now closed for The New Comedian of the Year 2019.

Back for a fourth year, the GYF New Comedian of the Year is again on the lookout for the best up and coming comedians from Yorkshire and beyond. The competition is open to any non-professional act who's been performing for 5 years or fewer and entries from character acts, musical acts, and sketch groups are welcome. The only restriction is that all contestants must stick to 5 minutes of original material or risk disqualification.
