Silver standup comedy today

by on February 17, 2012

We blogged about older comedians at the Edinburgh Festival last year.

Today is the Silver Standup Competition Final in Leicester for new and established comedians over 55. Details are here.

One of the awards is for Best Silver Standup Old Newcomer.

There’s an interesting article including  interviews with some of the comedians starting out on the comedy circuit challenging assumptions that standup is ‘youthful and anti-authoritarian’. The point I suppose is that we need to be careful about how we put adjectives together so that we don’t invariably associate one trait with the other.
