Musical Comedy Awards 2016

Now in its eighth year, the WeGotTickets Musical Comedy Awards is an annual competition to support, promote, expose and celebrate the best emerging musical comedians in the UK. If you like to combine music with comedy in any shape or form, then this is the competition for you.

Over the years, the MCAs have provided a launch pad to superstar acts like Frisky and Mannish (2009 Finalists), Abandoman (2010 winners) and Jay Foreman (Best Newcomer 2009 and now touring with Dave Gorman) and created a thriving independent platform to celebrate the artform that is musical comedy. Other acts that have featured as headliners in our shows include DAVID O’DOHERTY, BO BURNHAM, RUBBERBANDITS, MITCH BENN, ABANDOMAN, PIPPA EVANS, TOM BASDEN, ISY SUTTIE, GINGER & BLACK, EARL OKIN, WILSON DIXON, FRISKY & MANNISH, JO NEARY, MR B THE GENTLEMAN RHYMER, SARAH-LOUISE YOUNG, ADAMS & REA and many more.

Head to the 2016 Awards page to see full details on the upcoming shows. If you wanted to enter but have missed your chance follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates on the 2017 comp.
