Every year the Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs a competition to flush out the best and brightest emerging stand-up comedy talent in the country. Stand-up comedy is a hard mistress shes enticing but can be cruel... (tell me about it...)
Raw Comedy offers talented new comics the chance to fast-track their career when they get the Go Directly to Edinburgh card. Comics all around the country have built their careers on it, as the festival continues its mandate to nurture new comic voices.
There are two heats in the Northern Rivers region held at Byron.
At the first heat held recently Paul McMahon made it through to the Brisbane semi-final. The second heat will take place at the Byron Services Club next Monday, March 10, with Mandy Nolan as MC.
