Are you an aspiring stand up comedian? Have you always thought you could make an audience laugh? Perhaps you have been doing stand up for a few years and are looking for your big break. Either way, this is the competition for you!

TV1 is proud to announce a brand new TV series fronted by award-winning British comedian now Atlantic Canadian James Mullinger as he goes on the road to find the funniest person in Newfoundland, PEI, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Four lucky winners in each province will be treated to a one day comedy boot camp with Mullinger as he helps you refine your act. That night the four winners will appear in a live show with Mullinger and a panel of judges will crown one contestant the funniest person in your province.

The submission deadline is 10am AST on December 30th 2016.
