2013 Shortlist for Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards: Short on Yanks

We know we’re in the final days and nights of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe when the awards shortlist is released, and that just happened today.

So here they are, your shortlisted nominees for the 2013 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards!

Best Comic / Comedy Show
For the funniest, most outstanding, up-and-coming comic / comedy show/ act at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The prize is £10,000.

2013 Nominees:

Best Newcomer
For the performer or act who is performing their first full-length show (50 minutes or more) at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The prize is £5,000. Please note that newcomers are eligible for the Best Comedy Show Award, if that is the Panel’s decision, but no act can appear on both shortlists in the same year.

2013 Nominees:

No Americans on either of those shortlists.

But cheer up, mates. There’s still a chance for any of you to take home the Panel Prize.

Panel Prize
Like the Fringe itself, there are no rules. Everyone is eligible. It is entirely in the gift of the Panel and Award Director and may not be awarded at all. The prize is £5,000.

The winners of all three Awards will be announced on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013.
