Join the search for Perth’s best new comic!


The Perth Comedy Festival and Vulture Culture are searching for the best up-and-coming local comedian. The event to decide this, Next Gen Comedy, is based on audience vote, meaning we’re leaving it up to the people to decide who is the best in the West. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this exciting spectacle!

The winning comedian will be awarded a paid spot at Rottofest 2015.
