Calling all junior comedians! This is your chance to shine.

Back in November we announced that Comic Relief has teamed up with the BBC to bring schools the Red Nose Day Comedy Classroom with Blue Peter competition. It’s a chance for UK’s young, future comedians to spread the laughter with their best original jokes. It’s also great prep to hold a talent or comedy show in your class to get fundraising this Red Nose Day!

Who can apply?

Applicants can apply in two categories: 6-8 and 9-12.

The prize?

The winners will receive an orange Blue Peter badge and the chance to tell their joke on the Blue Peter Comic Relief special show on Thursday 23rd March 2017.

Entries close 28th February 2017 so don’t delay. Remember, all submissions must be made by a parent, teacher or guardian. You can apply by filling out this form.
