Lach’s Antihoot Open Stage at Henry’s Cellar Bar is launching a talent hunt – and offering £500 in prizes.

The regular Monday night event, hosted by Radio 4’s comedy star Lach, will run the competition from Monday November 11th for six weks. On each night two acts will win £25 each, and on Tuesday December 17th all twelve acts will compete in a ‘Superhoot’ with one the winner taking home a grand prize of £200 as well as securing a Friday night set at the venue.

They will also be inducted into the ‘Hall of Fame’ at
Performers, whether they are musicians, comedians, poets, burlesque, or whatever, get two songs or eight minutes to impress the crowd, who will choose their favourites – though host Lach himself will also have a wildcard vote to balance up votes from enthusiastic friends and family in the crowd.
