The national competition, launched in April this year, challenged primary school classes across the country to submit their best gags to be in with a chance of taking home the title of Britain’s Funniest Class 2019. Ten schools were shortlisted by comedian Harry Hill along with a panel of Beano’s gag masters before being put to a public vote on Beano.com to decide the winner.
Beano.com presenter Emma Shaw presented the class with the official Beano Britain’s Funniest Class trophy, along with prizes including a bundle of Beano annuals and comic subscriptions. The class will also be treated to a special joke workshop to help further hone their budding comedy skills.
