Wildcats Programme

Wild Cats is the Cat Laughs platform for up-and-coming comedic talent.

Now Seeking Submissions

Cat Laughs are looking to find our next batch of ambitious emerging comics to be part of WILD CATS.

Wild Cats are comics working towards a solo show. They will get:

– 1 hour preview of their new show in Cat Laughs
– Paired with a Cat Laughs mentor, who will see their show and give as much advice as is useful
– Transport and accommodation
– 90% of the box office takings

Participants will get to work their material for an hour, under the guidance of a more experienced comedian, for the best comedy audience in the world: The Kilkenny Cat Laughs.

Last year’s Wild Cats were Kiri Pritchard McClean, Joanne McNally, Alison Spittle, Chris Kent, Steve Bennett, Imam Edama and Sophie Hagen, and the mentors included the iconic Panti Bliss, Soho Theatre producer Kitty Edgar and veteran Irish comic Colin Murphy.

To Apply:
Email wildcats@thecatlaughs.com with the answers to these questions by March 1st:

-What have you done before and of what are you most proud?

-What’s the show you’re working on? What’s it about?

-What stage is it at now? Where do you see it going?

-Who would be your ideal mentor and why? (don’t be afraid to be ambitious here. you never know who might step up)

-Plus any links to your work/site/videos

If you aren’t keen to apply yourself, send this along to that one friend you know who would be just brilliant for it.

Cheers, and we’ll see you at Cat Laughs!
