The Grave wins Dave’s comedy competition

Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival have today announced its short film winner.


The Grave has won the Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival ‘Comedy Shorts Competition’.

Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival launched a short film festival competition in December to encourage the UK comedy talent to create side-splitting content, with the best being shown at this year’s festival.

The Grave is one of only ten animations, was chosen for its inventiveness and its instant ability to make the judges laugh.

Written by Richard Woolford, The Grave is about a man called Seymour who is having trouble finding a grave of an old relative of his, but luckily there’s someone there to help.

Richard said: “Winning this competition really means a lot to me as I am originally from a stand-up comedy back-ground, but had to stop when I got cancer (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma).  I find that doing things like writing and animation are an easy way for me to get back into doing comedy again, now that I have fully recovered.”

The judging panel included British comedian Richard Herring, Inbetweeners writer Iain Morris, Steve North, and the CEO of Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival, Geoff Rowe.

Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival runs from today, the 8th, until 24th February 2013.
