British Comedian Of The Year 2023 review

Its £10,001 prize has previously wooed some of the circuit's biggest hitters, such as Ian Stone, Steve Gribbin, Mike Gunn and Jeff Innocent. But this year's final of the British Comedian Of The Year seemed more open, with many experienced names but no perennial headliners at the bigger clubs. Indeed, the winner, Alistair Williams, has previously complained about being cancelled from the circuit for his contrarian views.

Live review: Amused Moose Laugh Off Final 2016

The Amused Moose Laugh Off Final has a pretty good track record at discovering future stars. Previous winners include Sarah Millican and Jack Whitehall. Everyone has their say in the vote - from audience members to industry representatives. The balcony at the Hippodrome was crammed with agents, journalists and movers and shakers. Interestingly we weren't asked to pick the best act, we were asked to pick the one we thought would be a star. A subtle difference to me, but let's leave that aside for now. Or maybe not.
