BBC Comedy & BBC Comedy Association – The Felix Dexter Bursary

The Felix Dexter Bursary is now in its fourth year, as BBC Comedy continues in its commitment to developing talented BAME comedy writers.

The opportunity, offered by BBC Comedy in partnership with the BBC Comedy Association (BCA), is designed to find writers with a fresh, unique point of view and the potential to help shape the future of comedy, whether within the BBC or elsewhere in the industry. It aims to make a positive intervention to address an under-representation of BAME professionals in comedy production across all broadcasting.
