Comedy writers and performers – can you make a 2 minute comedy video?
Chorts is an annual competition by The Comedy Crowd for 2 minute comedy videos that show potential to be developed into a series of superb episodes or sketches.
It’s free to enter, and shortlisted entries will be reviewed by an industry judging panel and screened at a festival event in November.
The winners are supported by Team Comedy Crowd and their expert coaches to provide you with advice and resources to turn your Chort! into a series and grow your audience, with development funding for the overall winner.
Comedy Crowd Co-founders Jon Jayson and Peter Wright say ‘The way new comedy finds its audience is changing, and this is creating exciting opportunities for new writers and performers. Shows like ‘People Just do Nothing‘ 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 created Chorts! so writers and performers can showcase their potential, make funny content quickly, and engage an audience.’
