Lindsey Santoro wins the BIGGEST Award in Comedy
Lindsey Santoro has won the BIGGEST Prize in Comedy for her critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe debut Pink Tinge. The Award, organised by NextUp, was decided by a public vote and a panel of judges. As part of her prize, Lindsey wins a 2m high inflatable trophy.
On hearing she won, Lindsey said: ‘What on earth is going on? I am absolutely thrilled to bits! As a daft commoner, I’m so elated that others find me funny rather than unhinged – it’s a fine line and it’s good to know I’m just about on the right side of it. What am I meant to do with this giant trophy? I’m going to have to leave my toddler in Edinburgh so I can wedge it in the car. Thank you so much Next Up! Overjoyed! What a wild ride this Fringe has been.’
Amy Williams, Producer at NextUp says: ‘Our aim with these awards is the same as the aim of our platform – to highlight incredible talent to comedy fans, in particular names people might not have heard of… yet! Lindsey had us crying with laughter from the smear test material all the way to the end of her show. She’s so at home on stage and so joyful in her delivery, you can’t help but love her.’
