A group of Leeds Metropolitan Univeristy  PR students have launched a competition to find the funniest human in Leeds.  The “iJokeULaugh” competition is encouraging people to submit a joke, anecdote, cartoon or short film that will make the sides split of upcoming comedians Eric Lampaert and Joel Domett, who will be judging the competition.

Eric Lampaert has been described as “a younger Noel Fielding, he is refreshingly bonkers and totally spontaneous” by Groove Magazine and recently starred in a very successful MTV and Virgin Atlantic advert. Joel Domett is the Co presenter of the Paul Foot Radio Show on Resonance FM and BBCs Sun Seekers and has had comedy roles on E4s Skins and ITVs Teenage Kicks.

Eric said “We are looking for something which is totally original and that grabs us by the balls, quite literally.  It could be a quirky one liner, a fantastically delivered anecdote or even a witty cartoon”

The competition is open to everyone can get access to the internet and has a sense of humour they wish to share with the world.   There are no strict rules on what can be submitted.  The only rule is that all entrants must be either a follower of the Leeds Met Students’ Union Twitter or a friend on the iJokeULaugh, Facebook or if you want to score some extra brownie points both.

The competition deadline is the 30th of April and there will be regular updates on both the Facebook and Twitter sites, including exclusive videos from Eric and Joel.  The competition will culminate with a comedy extravaganza at The Highlight Comedy Club on the 5th of May.

The competition is being sponsored by Highlight comedy club who are on the lookout for new comedy talent.  There will be weekly prizes for the best submissions on the Twitter and Facebook pages as well as plenty of prizes on the night, including 2 iPods. For more information visit

The iJokeUlaugh campaign is in support of The Teenage Cancer Trust, where 100% of the proceeds from tickets will go.
