Foster’s So You Think You’re Funny? Winners Announced

The standard of this years competition was so staggeringly high, it has meant that for the first time in 26 years of SYTYF? history there was a TIE!The two amazing winners are Australian pocket rocket Demi Lardner and Bristol boy Edd Hedges, both only the tender age of 19!

The two winners had very different styles, Demi who is alternative and surreal and Edd who is self depricating and hilariously awkward brought the judges, including guest judge; legendary comedian Sarah Millican- to a total standstill, they simply couldn’t decide on one winner, so the only thing to be done was to call it a TIE!
