Nice. I just finished a script and I'm working on a new one right now, so I think I'll have a go.

It seems a bit weird they aren't asking for e-mail submissions, though.

It means it's mostly shot in front of a live audience, as opposed to a sitcom like The Office, which wasn't.

hi,

maybe a silly question (definitely a silly question)

what is a studio sitcom?


Examples of studio sitcoms include The IT Crowd, Miranda and Mrs Brown's Boys.

An all-female judging panel.....


Oh Jesus, middle aged, middle class women judging a good sitcom, this does not bode well.

Time for me to wheel out 'Tim Dashing, the Doctor-Vicar-Vet who moves to the small village of Menopause Under Debenhams'

:(

Good grief your cinders of the comedy world.

If you get through I'll organise a whip round. I'm currently organising one for a kid issues to travel to California and beatup a dolphin

:) Even if I had loads more money you'd still need a significant amount spare to get from London to Manchester. Grr privatisation of trains etc

They pay travel if you get through to the later round for the one week bit, not for the one day stage :(

Travel expenses are paid for:
"16. The selected entrants will have the opportunity to attend a week long intensive residential writer's workshop during the week commencing 11th June 2012. Travel, accommodation and meals will be provided but no other costs or expenses will be paid by the BBC.The opportunity is as stated and cannot be deferred or transferred. There will be no cash alternatives."
From http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/opportunity/laugh_track_terms_and_conditions.shtml

(though the BBC still haven't repaid some of my travelling expenses they owe me...)

Yes. But not for the one day one previously. Not thinking as far ahead as the week one!
