Musical Comedy Awards 2015 semi-final 1
Now in its seventh year, the WeGotTickets MCA has grown in stature to become an annual fixture in the comedy calendar and the place to see the UK's finest up and coming musical comedians alongside some of the best established acts of the genre on the circuit. The competition has provided a launch pad to superstar acts like Frisky and Mannish (2009 Finalists), Abandoman (2010 winners) and Jay Foreman (Best Newcomer 2009 and has toured with Dave Gorman) and created a thriving independent platform to celebrate the artform that is musical comedy. Since 2009 the competition has also played host to stars of the genre such as DAVID O'DOHERTY, BO BURNHAM, RUBBERBANDITS, MITCH BENN, PIPPA EVANS, TOM BASDEN, ISY SUTTIE, MR B THE GENTLEMAN RHYMER and many more.
So we have reached the Semi-Final stage! This is now the all important battle to see which six acts will reach the Final on April 10th at the Bloomsbury. Come along for an amazing Saturday afternoon of musical comedy entertainment and vote for your favourite three acts to progress through to the final!
