The West Midlands' biggest comedy award is back after two years away.

The Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award recognises the very best new and up-and-coming comedy talent from the region. Officially launching 2022's festival, the show takes place at the prestigious Glee Club on Friday 7 October 2022.

A panel of comedy professionals, including acclaimed comics Josh Pugh and Celya AB, are among those who've selected the nominees based on performances over the last 12 months.

Both Josh and Celya are previous recipients of the award, and both have gone on to appear alongside big-name comedians, win other awards, and gain TV coverage.

Josh won English Comedian Of The Year, has appeared on TV channel Dave and recently opened for Brum comedy legend Joe Lycett, while Celya was nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award 2021 and has toured with The Guilty Feminist.

For 2022, the shortlisted acts are: Richard Dadd, Tal Davies, Jules O'Brian, Lovell Smith and Hannah Weetman.

A great opportunity to catch the next generation of Birmingham and West Midlands comedy talent before they make a serious name for themselves nationally, organisers state that each act has been chosen for their potential to 'break out'.


Alongside the competing acts, the night also features a very special closing set from the critically acclaimed Glenn Moore, and is compered by Brum stand-up James Cook.
