RAW Comedy National Grand Final

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the nation’s best new comedians are ready to battle it out at the ultimate fairground of funny, the RAW Comedy National Grand Final!

Having left audiences enthralled with spectacular sets at heats all over Australia last year, our comedy competitors from RAW Comedy 2020 were left hanging when COVID-19 closed down the nation’s stages. Now they finally get to finish what they started . The RAW class of 2020 will pick a winner on Sunday 11 April 2021.

This is their chance to steal the stage, following in the footsteps of RAW alumni Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Celia Pacquola, Matt Okine, Anne Edmonds, Becky Lucas and Aaron Chen.

Who will become Australia’s next comedy ringmaster? Take your seats at the National Grand Final and watch our finalists cannonball into a comedy career!

Host: Dane Simpson

Special Guests: Blake Freeman and Emma Holland
