It's time for the WA RAW Comedy State Final, held in 2024 at the beautiful Rechabite Hall!
We've whittled the state's freshest and funniest comedic talent down from literally hundreds - to just 15, and they've got five minutes each to impress the judges, for their chance to represent WA at the National Grand Final to be held at Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival!
With past competitors including Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Celia Pacquola, Matt Okine, Anne Edmonds, Becky Lucas and Aaron Chen (just to name a few), RAW Comedy is the place for new comedy talent to reach new heights, one joke at a time.
