Comedy Auction is a gameshow. A competition. An auction.

(BY the producers of award-winning & critically-acclaimed show, This Is Your Trial.)

What is anything really worth? What is the value of anything?

With your help, this is what we will discover.

How it works:

  • ·         Comedians are ‘experts’, providing their unique knowledge of Lots* being sold** at auction.
  • ·         Audience members are ‘bidders’ with 250 Auction Dollars each, they can use to bid with if persuaded.

*Curiosities/Things/Bits/Bobs. **Once bid meets reserve.

  • ·         Each Lot has a reserve price*** hidden from both experts and bidders.

***Indisputable minimum value.

  • ·         The Expert who sells their Lots for best total value**** wins their fee.

****relative to total reserve prices and ADs spent.

Successful bidders can take home the Lot they won!

Some of the Lots sold in previous shows include; 20yr old Yak jerky, a knitted willy-warmer, a kazoo, an egg-cuber, Europe's smallest cheese-grater and Tony Law's interpretation of the Mona Lisa.
