Love to tell jokes and make people laugh? Well, you’re in luck because a unique competition in the UAE is aiming to inspire funny people to try out stand-up comedy.
Frankie’s Italian Bar and Grill, which hosts a fortnightly dine and laugh comedy show in the capital, has launched the Comedian Quest in a bid to unearth the next generation of raw comedic talent.
Participants are being invited to upload a one-minute video telling a joke to Instagram and tag @frankiesuae to enter the competition, using the hashtag #FrankiesComedianQuest.
Entries will then be judged by a panel of UAE-based comedians with finalists being given the chance to perform material in front of an audience.
“This is a great opportunity for budding comedians as the Frankie’s crowd is full of regulars who know their comedy and are very respectful when new comics take the big step up onto the stage for the first time,” said Frankie’s host Simeon Goodson.
“It will be a brilliant and potentially life-changing experience for those we shortlist to perform.”
