Grab a mic and show Comedy Central what you got

If you have what it takes to get people chuckling then this casting call is for you...

The search is called Grab the Mic and there are two ways of entering:

2. By performing live at Parker's Comedy and Jive at Montecasino in Joziburg.

Submitting an online vid

To enter online you need to upload a video clip of yourself performing your comedy routine. The clip needs to be between 30 seconds and three minutes.

You can upload your video on the Comedy Central site here (you'll see the entry form at the bottom of the page):Grab the Mic entry form - you'll find submission guidelines here too.

If you're having trouble uploading your vid, you can submit your entry via e-mail by sending it to this

Performing live

How the winners will be chosen
