The BBC New Comedy Award 2013 is back and yes, we know we always say this, but we really are bigger and better than before!
How? Well this year, every single heat is going to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, meaning that we're going to be able to feature all 80 shortlisted comedians on national radio. We'll also continue to keep you updated with the talent search with our videos, galleries, blogs and tweets.
As with previous events, even if you're not a performer, you can still attend one of our shows and have your say in the wildcard and final votes. Tickets will be available shortly and all the information you need will be right here on this website.
To celebrate, we asked 2012 winner Lucy Beaumont to star in our brand new launch video, filmed here at the BBC. You can hear her show, Lucy Beaumont: to Hull and Back on Radio 4 on June 18th.
Lucy's career has continued to go from strength-to-strength since you voted her last year's champion, and she'll be performing in The Comedy Zone during August's Edinburgh Festival with fellow 2012 finalists Tommy Rowson and Matt Winning.
So if you fancy gracing the Radio 2 and Radio 4 Extra airwaves this year, you should get your entry in now.
The BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2013: it really could be yours - but only if you enter, so crack on and spread the words to your funny friends while you're at it, please!
