Comedy writers and performers – the new way to get your comedy noticed by producers and commissioners!Chorts are short comedy videos, max 2 minutes in length, showcased to fans and top industry folks by The Comedy Crowd.
It’s free for creators to submit a video, and the best entries submitted by the 16th June will be screened at a live Chorts event at the Bill Murray Comedy Club in Islington, London on Thursday 13th July, with the winner chosen by audience vote on the night.
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, build an audience, and producers, agents and commissioners can find the best new talent to work with.’
If you are a writer who doesn’t want to get in front of the camera, you can now create a profile on their website for free and find actors to play your Chort, there are more details on the website.
Deadline: 16 June 2017
