The Midlands Comedy Awards were established in 2014 and recognise the achievements of Midlands-based comedy writers, performers, producers and promoters. Awards are handed out annually in December, with nominees chosen by industry and winners decided by public vote. There are eleven categories and eligibility is based on residence in any of the following English counties:
Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire, Herefordshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands or Worcestershire.
The Midlands Comedy Awards were established to recognise the huge number of hard working and talented people in our regional comedy community. These are the individuals who bring laughter to thousands across the Midlands and beyond every year, and the Awards Gala is our big annual celebration for the regional scene.Jay Shareef, Founder
The Awards are operated by an Organising Committee, all of whom are automatically ineligible for nomination. (This isn’t one of those dodgy comedy awards where the people running it start handing themselves trophies!!) Full details can be found on our Rules page and we’ve also produced some FAQs.
