Letter: STAND OUT FINAL ROYAL COURT.
THE best young comedians from around Merseyside thrilled a sell-out crowd and gave the judges a tough time in picking winners.
Graduates of the Stand Out Programme run by the Liverpool Comedy Trust set an extremely high standard and all 12 competitors stood up to be counted.
In the end, the 14-16 year-old category was won by Dan Shea from Cowley Language College, St Helens and the 16-18 year-old category was won by Faye Burnell from Southport.
Expect great oaks from these comedy acorns.
