MySpace Trident Comedy Award 2008

So... we're only five days away from knowing the winner of the inaugural MySpace Trident Comedy Award! Since receiving all the entries back in September we've seen some amazing talent, both well-known and obscure. The final six reflects both ends of the spectrum with Patrick Monahan and Ivan Brackenbury at one end - acts who gig most nights of their life and have acheived great things already in their career - to Ashton & George - two schoolboys whose DIY bedroom-based show harks back to the old days of Adam & Joe and hitherto has only been seen by a relatively small online audience. That could all be set to change, and indeed whoever walks away with the prize on Thursday will produce a pilot series with Warner and MySpace and the mentorship of the eminent John Lloyd - the man behind such shows as Not The Nine O'Clock News, Spitting Image, Blackadder and QI. Not only will their pilot be taken to all the major broadcasters and commissioners but the winning act will enjoy £250,000 worth of promotion on the world's premier social network and entertainment portal!
You can win tickets to the event itself or catch the action live online - wherever you are on this planet of ours! Go to
