Stand Up & Be Funny is a new comedy talent competition searching for Ireland's next great stand-up comedian... and we need your vote!

Since the competition launched on The Ray D'Arcy Radio Show in October, hundreds of funny folk applied and eighteen amateur comedians took to the stage in three regional heats. Now 3 comics have been selected to go through to the live final on The Ray D'Arcy TV Show on RTÉ One on Saturday 7th December. 

The judges have had their say - and now it's over to you!  There's one spot left in the final for a wildcard chosen by the public. Check out the fifteen shortlisted comedian's performances at the regional heats, and vote for who you'd like to see at the live final with a chance to be crowned the new King or Queen of Comedy!

The final will be live on the Ray D'Arcy TV show on RTÉ One at 9.40pm on Saturday 7th December.
