I'm doing my little dance of joy and sending out heartfelt and proud congratulations to two of my Komedia Brighton stand-up comedy course graduates. Tonight - Alex Petrovic was the runner-up and Dinesh Nathan was the winner of the "South Coast Comedian of the Year" 2019!
I'm proud of my comedy course graduates track record in this comedy competition. "South Coast Comedian of the Year" has been won by my comedy course graduates almost every year since it started. Roz Ryan has been a runner-up and Joe Foster, Mike Cox and Martin Wratten have all won it.
Mike Cox was the first. He's now broken through into the bigger comedy clubs like Krater and Glee and he's currently tour support for my comedy class graduate and Comic Boom at Komedia Brighton MC the wonderful Paul McCaffrey.
Martin Wratten won last year. He also won Hastings Comedy Fringe Festival "Newcomer of the Year" and performed in the highly prestigious "Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year" Grand Final.
Who knows what the future holds for Alex Petrovic and Dinesh Nathan but I have a feeling it's going to be very exciting! I'm so proud of them both. I may be dancing for quite some time...
