The First Laugh Comedy Writing Competition is a free-to-enter peer-to-peer competition aiming to help brand new writers get a foot in the door of the UK comedy industry. It’s for people with credits on two shows or fewer, so people with no credits at all can enter, which isn’t the case with a lot of competitions. You must be resident in the UK to enter.
They are just looking for one sketch, maximum 400 words, 10 one-liner gags and a paragraph about what winning this prize would mean to you.
Deadline: 8 November 2019 at midnight
