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...

Comedy Central is on a search for stand-up comics from across sub-Saharan Africa and auditions are open as we speak.

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

1. By submitting an online video,
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 address:info@comedycentralafrica.com

NB: If you e-mail your entry you need to include all of the details requested on the entry form i.e. Your name, surname, date of birth etc.

One finalist will be selected from these online auditions.

Performing live

You can apply to audition live at Parker's Comedy and Jive by e-mailing Joe Parker on this address:info@parkerscomedy.com.

The search is happening every Wednesday night at Parker's so you'll be asked to perform on an upcoming Wednesday night if your application is successful.

One winner will be chosen on each night.

How the winners will be chosen

Heat winners from the live auditions and the online finalist will battle it out at an event on 24 November 2016. These performances will be filmed and broadcast live.

Two winners will be chosen: one from South Africa and one from the rest of Africa.

Entry must-knows

#MATRIC2017: Past Papers

Once you've done all your studying and you're feeling good about yourself, the next step is to attempt some past papers. Work through them, question by question, to get an idea of the types of questions that could be asked in your own exams.

It doesn't matter how well you know the content of the exam if you can't answer the questions! Being able to read a question and understand what is expected of you is a super duper important skill that will help you get through your Matric finals. It can also have plenty of applications later in life too!
