The Golden Beak Comedy Awards 2013


It is the time of year when Bridgnorth becomes the comedy capital of Great Britain with Theatre Companies from all over Britain descending to compete in the annual GOLDEN BEAK COMEDY AWARDS.  Comedy abounds as there are two separate series of one act comedies on Sunday afternoon and evening, with each performance followed by a fascinating adjudication with the Awards Ceremony itself following the last performance on Sunday night. As always the atmosphere will be electric, creating a tension for the competing theatre companies which will be greater than at the OSCARS,  whilst the audience can sit back and enjoy the sheer comedy each of the plays. “hilarious entertainment.”


This years adjudicator is Adam Green the BBC Radio Shropshire Drive time presenter who describes himself as being a guy with a beard who has a penchant for a nice sandwich.


He has many claims to fame including going one whole month without having a drink for a TV programme, eating cat food for a job, and running two marathons. The second was a mistake. 


In 2011 he was the Northgate Robber, one of the  Ghosts in the Bridgnorth Theatre on the Steps world famous Ghost Walk during which he did

live broadcasts from the Theatre. He then went on to take part in BBC Televisions Stand Up for Comic Relief and knows only too well how difficult it is to make an audience laugh.


When asked the question “Can you imagine anything more terrifying than standing on stage trying to make people laugh?” Adam answered “No” as he headed for the door!


Forthright, entertaining and willing to give anything a try – well almost anything, Adam will provide a great new perspective to the Golden Beak Comedy Awards.
