Laughter Class tickets on sale NOW!

Tickets have gone on sale for Ustreme’s Laughter Class grand final, as we search for the country’s next big comedy star.

Dozens of wannabe comedians who fancy themselves as the next big thing put their raw stand-up skills to the test in nerve-wracking auditions in front of Jim Davidson and a panel of judges – with nine successful candidates securing a place on the Laughter Class course.

The finalists will now be put through their paces and trained in all genres of comedy from stand-up to script writing, performing in a double act, panto performance and mic technique by a host of industry experts over three days – before taking to the stage in front of a live audience to perform their own stand-up routines when a winner will be chosen.

The grand final will take place at the Concorde Club, in Eastleigh, on October 31st, and tickets are on sale now.

Tickets cost £17.50 or £47.50 with a three-course meal, and are available by calling 023 8061 3989 or visiting

Ustreme founder and comedy legend, Jim, said: “We had a fantastic response to our search for the next comedy star.

“It was a great mixture of people at different stages of their comedy careers. Some had only ever performed in front of their families and friends, others had been to a handful of open mic nights and some were already doing it as a living but wanted to improve.

“The whole thing is about finding raw talent that can be nurtured, it wasn’t necessarily about putting through the people who put on the most polished audition.

“We’ve now got nine acts we really think we can work with to make it big in the comedy world. We’re all very excited to see how they develop and improve on the course before putting themselves out there for the grand final on October 31st. We wish them all the very best of luck.”
