Just found out my sketch won this - woo, and indeed hoo!

As Otterfox said last year, the prize sounds great so looking forward to more details.

Thanks Eustace (not the real name I assume unless I misread the list). I thought they did a good job with mine (my stuff is particularly wordy), and indeed all the sketches - a pretty good smattering of laughs all round and some jolly nice stuff. I was particularly impressed that they had learned them all - I only noticed 1 stumble in the show during the last sketch. Were you happy with yours?

Mine was the very first one , "Working From Home" - yeah I was pleased with how they did it, the performers did justice to all the sketches and I liked that they made each one distinct by changing their hair, costumes etc.

A good experience all round, though it would have been nicer to have won ;)

One of my favourites, if that's any help.

These things are always a bit of a lottery as its really a question of what the judges voting for what they like rather than any objective 'betterness'.

I can't think of a recent example of a bunch of people voting for something which exemplifies that lottery principle for some reason.:(
