Class Clowns - Ballarat Heat 2021

Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s one-of-a-kind national comedy competition for young people is now happening.

Class Clowns aims to inspire, engage and elevate teens aged 14-18 (Years 9–12). It’s free to enter, and all students need is a 3-5 minute original act in any style of comedy.

Heats around the country start with a 2-hour workshop, where students rehearse and refine their act with the help of a professional comedian, followed by an opportunity to perform for a live audience (YOU!).


Selected comedians go on to compete in state finals, with the winners invited to participate in the National Grand Final for a chance to win a cash prize of $1500, and a workshop package for their school.

For over two decades, Class Clowns has helped hundreds of funny, young peeps hone their comedy potential. Past participants like Joel Creasey, Annie Louey, Rhys Nicholson, Aaron Chen and William McKenna have gone on to have a career in showbiz, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is always on the look-out for the next generation of funny people.

If you’re the teacher, parent or guardian of a funny teen, head to classclowns.com.au to learn more and register.

If you would like the opportunity to be in the live audience at the Ballarat Heat of Class Clowns, and to see some up-and-coming comedians perfect their craft head to https://classclownsballarat2021.eventbrite.com.au
