Pozzitive Comedy – Funny Dot Comp (Radio Comedy Script Development Competition)

Pozzitive is a multi-award-winning producer of audio comedy (Cabin PressureArmando Iannucci’s Charm OffensiveAgendum) and they couldn’t get to the Edinburgh Fringe this year, so they’ve launched a competition to find – and then develop – the four funniest scripts in the realm.

Four radio comedy scripts will be selected for further development, which will include:

  • A detailed script-editing session by multi-award-winning producer/director David Tyler leading to…
  • … a fully-rehearsed table read or mic’d-up performance, by a cast of professional actors (or your own team if it’s a writer/performer-led script)…
  • … with a view to possible further development by Pozzitive and a submission to audio broadcasters.

You can be a single writer, a team, an existing act, a writer/performer combo or just a devilishly-clever piece of text-generating software. If you have representation, you can submit it through your agent. The only criterion is that it must be a 30 minute audio comedy script that might reasonably be broadcast and form the nucleus of a series.

More information is available on the Funny Dot Comp website

The competition is open to any writer aged over 18 and based in the UK.

In order to apply, please send your radio comedy script, along with a brief outline and biography, as a pdf to katie@pozzitive.co.uk

Deadline: midnight on January 10th 2021
