Are your scripts a laugh a minute? Want to create your own sitcom or sketch show?

You probably heard the recession means audiences are crying out for good quality comedy. The timing has never been better to develop your own and get it noticed by the people that matter.

And they don’t come bigger than Gregor Sharp! Gregor has worked extensively at the BBC and in the independent sector as a writer, producer and executive producer. Gregor is currently Executive Editor on the BBC Comedy Commissioning Team.

During this three hour lab at the festival six lucky writers will develop their ideas for sketch comedy and sitcom. Participants will also read and give feedback on one another’s scripts and discuss what goes into making great comedy on TV.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get expert advice on how to create a comedy sketch show or sitcom for television and not to be missed.
