become a joke teller

Are you funny? Do you have a joke you want to share with the community? Now's your chance; we are looking for you!

We are looking for funny people who are good at telling jokes. Joke tellers will be filmed at a scheduled joke telling session (or you can submit your own video!) and the selected jokes will be presented on the night of the event.

Due to COVID-19 we have put all joke telling sessions on hold for now but don't fret, you still have an opportunity to claim your fame from the comfort of your own home!

To submit your joke, please read the guidelines. Register below and our producer will be in touch.


If you'd like to submit a joke, please follow these simple guidelines for self-filming:


Please shoot videos in landscape mode instead of portrait.  That means turning the phone side ways instead of in an upright position.


The backwards facing camera on the iPhone/Android is better quality and higher resolution than the front facing (“selfie”) camera, so if possible, have someone hold the phone to shoot you or prop the phone up in a suitable position.


Try to find a bright, quiet location.  The more light, the better the image quality will be, and similarly the less background noise present, the clearer the sound will be.  Try to avoid sitting directly under pot lights, as it will cause Raccoon like shadows on the face, or with a light source (such as a window) behind you.


The video can be edited, so if the first part of the video is good and then there is a stumble, start again to the beginning of that part of the video and re-do it.  We will edit out the bad take(s).

To submit your joke, please email or register below and our producer will be in touch with you directly.
