WHO WE ARE
Will Franken ("Mock The Week", "Have I Got News For You") is pleased to announce this year he will officially present, along with special guests, the inaugural Defining The Norm Awards at this year's Fringe Festival. Shows will be judged on conformity to industry standards, marketable status, adherence to shared political opinion, and audience pandering. Special categories for shows consisting of safe targets, stifled free speech, and lack of original or perceptive messages will also be recognised, in addition to most marketably correct and expensive flyer and poster combination. If you feel you have a show that is uniform, systematic, and average, you could be a winner.
