Hull’s Funniest Festival gets new pupils

Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University are joining forces with The Hull Comedy Festival this year, to host a Joke Box competition as part of the festivals 15th Anniversary events and charity partnership.

The Joke Box Competition is to find the funniest joke teller from the children and schools that the charity work with. HEY Children’s University strive to raise the self-esteem and aspirations of young people by developing and providing unique learning experiences that they otherwise may not have. The partnership will help the young people who take part to build their confidence, develop communication and presentation skills and hopefully, providing some big belly laughs for the city.  

Schools will be given the chance to showcase the comedic talents of the pupils, providing an opportunity for children to learn the basics of stand-up comedy performance and develop their own jokes. The competition will select the 12 best original jokes across five schools, culminating in a live performance as part of the city’s funniest festival in November. Crowning The Joke Box winner in front of a specially selected comedy panel, with friends and family to cheer them on, a limited number of tickets will also be available to the general public.

Who will be crowned with the Funniest Joke award as part of the HEY Children’s University Joke Box Competition?
