The BBC New Comedy Awards are a nationwide hunt to find the best new stand-up comics. The heats take place across six UK cities; Croydon, Wolverhampton, Swansea, Dundee, Portrush and Halifax. Each heat is presented by a well-known comedian and Yorkshire-born Amy was delighted to host in her home county. All 6 heats are available now on BBC Three (online) and BBC iPlayer, with Episode 3 from Halifax broadcast on BBC One on Tuesday 26th October at 11.35pm.
The prestigious awards have been running since 1995 and have helped launch the careers of many of the UK's best-loved comedians. The winner receives £1,000 plus a paid commission to write and perform in a 30-minute audio pilot, mentored by a BBC comedy commissioner.
She said of the five acts who performed, "they were all SO GOOD and the judges SO damn STYLISH". The three judges, Mawaan Rizwan, Rosie Jones and Josh Jones, chose Molly McGuinness as the winner.
The final will take place in Newcastle on Wednesday 3rd November and will be broadcast on BBC One on Friday 5th November.
Watch Episode 3 now on iPlayer.
