EAU WHAT A LVELY’
Every August, Edinburgh fills up with hundreds of people who are gagging for a laugh . . . and that’s just the comedians. For three long weeks, Edinburgh becomes comedy central for the whole world; and of course some acts have more fizz than others.
That’s where Perrier comes in. For the past seventeen years, the Perrier Award panel has been checking out every comedy act on the Fringe, sorting out the sparkling from the flat.
The Perrier Awards for Best Comedian and Best Newcomer, presented each year during the final week of the Festival, have long been the most coveted bottle—shaped items in comedy. Previous winners include Frank Skinner (1991), Lee Evans (1993), Jenny EClair, (1995) and Dylan Moran (1996).
JOIN THE PERRIER PANEL
This year, one lucky reader of The List will have an exclusive opportunity to take part in the judging for the Perrier Awards.
It’s hard work, mind. You’ll be expected to see around fifty shows (many of them late at night) and share your opinion with the other judges. There's no funny money to be made, but you’ll get free tickets for all the shows, plus a whole crate of champagne to yourself.
If you think you’re the person to separate the rib—splitters from the bullshitters, and you’ve got some time to spare this August, send your application in now.
Write us a letter of about 250 words, telling us your views and feelings about comedy, and saying why you think you’re the person for the job.
Send your entry, with your name, address
