Biggest Edinburgh Fringe Trophy Announced

Biggest Edinburgh Fringe Trophy Announced

A new competition by NextUp (‘the Netflix of UK stand-up’) has launched to find the best comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe. The winner receives what is undeniably the BIGGEST award in comedy ever. 

The winning act will receive a 2 metre inflatable trophy (literally the biggest award in comedy):

Plus:

  • an air pump

  • a carry case so the lucky winner can proudly display it wherever they go

  • £500 

  • a headline slot at London’s famous Comedy Store

  • The option to have their special recorded for the NextUp Platform

 

Daniel Berg, co-founder of NextUp says: “This ridiculous award is what happens when there’s a team brainstorm and somebody says, “There are no stupid ideas”. Somehow it’s matured into fruition like spilt milk into a Cheesestring. Though somehow, I think it’s actually quite good (again - like a Cheesestring). The award talks to NextUp’s mission of curating and amplifying the best live comedy to fans worldwide. Whilst for comedians, it’s a chance to win £500 and literally the biggest award in comedy ever. That’s quite an accolade, and of course - an immense physical burden”.

Voting is open now at nextupcomedy.com/bigaward

A winner will be announced on the 25th August and presented with their 2 metre trophy (which can be deflated and stored by Nextup if their mantel isn’t big enough)
