Council is partnering with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) to present Class Clowns a national youth comedy competition and workshop program. The competition has been run by MICF since 1996 and is aimed at young people aged 14 to 17 years (or in Year 9 to 12).

At a Class Clowns gig, participants who have prepared a comedy routine (max 5 mins) participate in a workshop with a professional comedian before performing on stage to a public audience. The winner goes to the Queensland State Final at Brisbane Powerhouse, and can go on to the Nationals in Melbourne, to compete for $2000 in cash and prizes.

In the lead up, council is offering free Crash Course workshops with a professional comedian across the Coast for budding comedians to learn valuable comedy skills, test their material and help prepare them for the Class Clowns heat.
Class Clowns acts can enter through their school or independently as an individual, duo or trio.
