Comedy venue chain The 99 Club has allocated its 2022 bursaries for female and non-binary comedians.
The club explains: "Tuesday's showcase is only one element of The 99 Club's Bursary for female & non-binary comedians. Not only does the programme award its finalists financial support for their debut at the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, but allows The 99 Club to establish working relationships with both our selected finalists and comedians who applied for the programme.
"Past bursary recipients include Sarah Keyworth, Helen Bauer, Sophie Duker, Catherine Bohart, Lauren Pattison and Janine Harouni. These previous bursary recipients have gone on from promising new acts to appearing on the likes of Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Taskmaster and Comedy Central's Roast Battle, to name a few."
