The Top Ten have been decided by an industry panel (including critics, promoters and producers) who have watched all entries online before viewing the long list live in Edinburgh.

The finalists will now perform ten minute sections from their show in Amused Moose Comedy's Laughter Awards Final, which is due to take place this Sunday 27th August at The Space @Symposium Hall from 1:15pm. The event will be hosted by Mark Dolan with a guest performance from 2013 finalists Jonny & the Baptists.

The winner will take home a £5000 cash prize and a shiny Moose trophy.
