Awesome news, Beano fans! Top comedian and lol-machine, Suzi Ruffell, has been announced as special Head Judge in Beano’s MASSIVE search to find Britain’s Funniest Class!

The nationwide competition (which is now in its whopping fourth year!), is created in partnership with YoungMinds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health. It aims to lift classroom spirits and help build resilience, whilst inspiring the next generation of comedy geniuses through joke-writing lessons.

Hundreds of primary schools across Britain submitted their best gags, which have been whittled down by Suzi with Beano’s best gagmakers and now go forward to a public vote to decide the winner. But if YOU haven't voted yet, quick! Hurry! You don't have long! You can find all this year's jokes HERE so just click, laugh, vote and be happy!

Speaking about her exciting new judging role, Suzi Ruffell said: “I am so excited to be a part of this year’s competition, it’s such an incredible opportunity for kids to find their inner-comedian and let their imaginations run wild in true Beano style. Judging the jokes was a tough job and now it’s over to the public to decide who will appear in the comic with me!”

The winning class will be turned into characters and feature in the Beano comic in late June, as well as winning comic subscriptions and Beano books for the whole class, so make sure you don't miss that! If you need to know how to get your hands on a Beano comic, here's how!
