Acts taking part in 2019 MCA announced!

So here we have the results – the acts who we are inviting to the heats stage of the 2019 WeGotTickets Musical Comedy Awards. As always it was very tough deciding and to those of who are not through, we are really sorry to disappoint you. Please contact Ed at ed@musicalcomedy.co.uk and we would like to invite you to be our guest with two free tickets to a first round heat of your choice at the Phoenix. With such a high standard we’ve sadly had to turn down a few acts with fab songs that we really enjoyed. Similarly, a few acts that we’ve had the pleasure of hosting before are not through this time as there were so many newbies that we wanted to give a chance to. We sincerely hope you won’t give up and will enter again in the future – coming to see one of the heats might even give you some ideas for entering again next year with a slightly tweaked format/material! Thank you so much for entering!

As a result of the high standard, we’ve again chosen to select not 40, but 48 acts. Here they are in no apparent order – if you would like us to edit your name/stage name do let us know:
