Comedy’s favourite grumpy old man Arthur Smith hosts the celebrated annual Empire New Act of the Year Finals. For over 25 years the show has unleashed the sharpest, wittiest and most inventive new comics on to the grand Hackney Empire stage and then on to rock’n’roll comedy stardom: Russell Brand, Catherine Tate, Gina Yashere, Luke Toulson and Men In Coats, to name a few. Join the throng of comedy celebrities, agents and the media to witness the stars of the future.
Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
