In each stage of the Stand-up Competition (Preliminary, Semi-Finals, Finals) comedians are scored, by three independent judges, from 1-10 in three categories: Audience Reaction, Originality, and Stage Presence.

In the event of a tie the comedian with the highest average Audience Reaction scores will win- followed by Originality and Stage Presence.
