We’re giving away a pair of tickets every day this week for the Big Comedy Gala in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support to the people who can get us the BEST celebrity endorsements for the show.
Whether a RT of a message about the show on Twitter, a clip of someone drunk in a bar saying the show sounds amazing or Her Majesty The Queen declaring a public holiday to celebrate the event, we’d like you to help us create a buzz.
Here’s a suggested text or phrase you should get them to say on film or Tweet:
Tickets are now on sale for the Big Comedy Gala in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The rules are simple.
1: Your chosen celebrity must reference the Big Comedy Gala in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
2: We need to be able to track the origin of the message (this is easy on Twitter, less so on Facebook). Just Tweet us, post a screen grab or upload your clip on the Facebook wall.
3: We decide what constitutes the BEST celebrity endorsement (bear in mind, we have a soft spot for 1980s pop stars, comics off the telly and people of the sexy variety).
4: Only one pair of tickets can be won per entrant. Winner’s tickets can be collected on the door on the night.
5: The competition closes at 5pm on Sunday 11 August with winners being informed on a daily basis.
