On October 1st we will be opening doors to enter the 9th WeGotTickets Musical Comedy Awards! Every year we come across so many fantastic new musical comedy acts breaking through on the circuit and also have the privilege of welcoming back acts that have competed before and further honed their talent! We’re all booked in to the Phoenix for our first round heats, Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals and soon we will be able to confirm the date for our final at the Udderbelly on Southbank! Please read our terms and conditions here: https://musicalcomedyawards.com/competition-terms-and-conditions/ and post a video of your original musical comedy material to our Facebook page between October 1st and December 11th. We simply cannot wait to see the entries!
