Lucont lands the Amused Moose
Andrew Mickel20 August 2012
Marcel Lucont: Gallic Symbol has beaten over 100 other shows to the Amused Moose Laughter Award.
The award, which was introduced last year, is open to any act who doesn’t have a commercial DVD deal.
The prize is £5,000 and a commercial-standard DVD recording of Lucont’s show by sponsor 2entertain.
The gallic alter ego of Alexis Dubus has made a name for himself as both a stand-up show, and as the host of late-night cabaret.
The ten finalists were Alistair Barrie: Urban Fogey, Asher Treleaven: Troubadour, Carl Hutchinson: Acceptable?, DeAnne Smith: Livin’ the Sweet Life, Gordon Southern’s A Brief History of History, Helen Arney: Voice of an Angle, Jim Campbell: Nine-year-old Man, Laurence Clark: Inspired, Marcel Lucont: Gallic Symbol and Yianni: Numb and Number.
Earlier the best breakthrough act was split by Funmbi and Richard Todd.
All winners will feature in the Amused Moose Comedy Awards Showcases at London’s Soho Theatre in September.
