Straight people *can* be funny!
The UK comedy industry is saturated with queer acts leaving many heterosexual comedians with nowhere to go… besides All Bar One.
Join gay ally, Simon David’s search to find the UK’s funniest straight to win the prestigious SCOTY 2023 title, a Sports Direct Gift Card worth £100,000, an unlimited supply of Fosters and a Fiat 500.
HEAT FIVE LINE UP TBA
Any act discovered not to be 100% straight will be disqualified and receive a SCOTY lifetime ban. LGBTQ+ audiences are welcome but a reminder that this is an event for straight people by a gay man celebrating straight people.
