Comedy writers and performers – introducing a new way to get your comedy noticed by producers and commissioners.
Comedy Crowd Co-founders Jon Jayson and Peter Wright say: “The way new comedy finds it’s audience is changing, and this is creating exciting opportunities for new writers and performers. Shows like ‘People Just do Nothing‘ and the ‘The Ladventures of Thomas Gray‘ got off the ground when their creators, who at the time were unknowns in comedy, picked up a camera and showed off their characters.
“We’ve created Chorts! so writers and performers can showcase their work and get audience feedback, and producers, agents and commissioners can find the best new talent to work with.”
