Who will be the last one standing?


Every year hundreds of funny folk from across Australia sign up for their time in the spotlight as part of RAW Comedy, the country’s largest and most prestigious open mic comedy competition.


This winter, we’re covering all corners of the country, to lure out of hibernation the next generation of comedy superstars.


Some of the nation’s finest funny-makers have cannonballed into comedy acclaim through RAW Comedy – Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Celia Pacquola, Matt Okine, Anne Edmonds, Becky Lucas and Aaron Chen, just to name a few. All you need is five minutes of original material and your eyes on the prize… get through the heats and finals and you could be the last one standing!


The COVID-19 pandemic has created a bit of havoc with our usual schedule so RAW Comedy 2021 will take place over winter with heats from June-August. For more info and or to register visit rawcomedy.com.au
