RAW Comedy Winter 2021 - Season Update

Wednesday 22 September, 2021

Due to continuing COVID lockdowns in NSW and Victoria, we will not be able to complete the season and host a 2021 RAW Comedy Winter National Grand Final before the year is out.

We have  decided to postpone the remaining NSW and Victorian heats to February/March 2022 and roll all the 2021 winter season’s finalists into 2022 at the National Grand Final during the 2022 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

There will be no RAW Comedy heats in states and territories other than NSW and Victoria in 2022. The winter 2021 state winners will represent in 2022.
