The NATYS Comedy Showcase and Awards Final Thirteen new acts are given five minutes to work their magic in the annual final to crown comedy's New Act of The Year. Now in its 33rd year, this comedy showcase and awards event moves to the Leicester Square Theatre in 2016 and promises a variety of performers - from stand-up to sketch shows, singers to surrealist and spoofs. Previous finalists include the likes of Russell Brand, Harry Hill, Ed Byrne, Lee Mack, Tim Vine, Micky Flannagan, Jack Whitehall, Simon Amstel and Rhod Gilbert. Auditions and heats are held between October and December 2015 at the Rich Mix Arts Centre in Bethnal Green ahead of the showcase and awards final at Leicester Square Theatre on Sunday 31st January 2016. Among the thirteen acts are Revan & Fennel, a double act kicking football satire, Josh Pugh, mastering the art of one-liners, and Thomas Rackham who revels inside Birmingham nightlife.

About Leicester Square Theatre

In 2002 this compact, 350 seater opened with Taboo, Boy George's musical trawl through Thatcher's 80s and his own turbulent career, a production that ran for well over a year. The Leicester Square Theatre seems to have succeeded in carving out a niche for itself amongst the many grand Edwardian playhouses and cavernous auditoriums of London's Theatreland.
