Now in its 15th year, the WeGotTickets Musical Comedy Awards is an annual competition to support, promote, expose and celebrate the best emerging musical comedians in the UK. If you are a fan of musical comedy acts such as Tim Minchin, Flight of the Conchords and Bill Bailey, you'll love this show!
Over the years, the MCAs have provided a launch pad to now established and emerging stars of the genre such as Frisky and Mannish (2009 Finalists), Abandoman (2010 winners), Rachel Parris (Runner Up 2012 and star of the Mash Report), Mae Martin, Jazz Emu and many more. The MCA has created a thriving independent platform to celebrate the artform that is musical comedy. Other acts that have featured as headliners in our shows include DAVID O' DOHERTY, BO BURNHAM, JAYDE ADAMS, RUBBERBANDITS, MITCH BENN, JAY FOREMAN, PIPPA EVANS, TOM BASDEN, ISY SUTTIE, GINGER & BLACK, EARL OKIN, WILSON DIXON, JO NEARY, MR B THE GENTLEMAN RHYMER, SARAH-LOUISE YOUNG, ADAMS & REA and many more.
So the fifteenth MCA begins! The top 40 musical comedy acts will be selected from online entries and will then battle it out in the heats at the Phoenix through to the Final at the Bloomsbury on March 31st. Come along for amazing Saturday afternoons of musical comedy entertainment and vote for your favourite acts to progress through to the next round!
Heat 2 will be headlined by runner-up of the 2022 WeGotTickets Musical Comedy Awards, the brilliant Talal Karkouti!
