Hi,

I'm working on a political sitcom with a reasonably original premise and I'm looking for collaboration with someone who's left-wing and funny. I've got a terrible draft that I'm working on making less terrible and a lot of the work is done in terms of the plot and characters, but the truth is I'm not a natural comic. It is pretty aggressively political, so it would suit someone who cares about stuff like that who is also good at jokes.

Have you considered Jeremy Corbyn? He's a real joke!

You beat me to this Chappers.

Good luck Textworlder and welcome to the site. There are a few lefties on here.

Ps - can you guess me and Chappers aren't two of them:P

Lol thanks for the replies... I think ???". Tbf I'm not sure which is more likely atm, me finishing my script or Corbyn becoming PM.

(Actually, I had a breakthrough last night, after months of writing unmitigated crap/exposition I finally put together 2 pages of actual useful dialogue. With jokes. Not greatly funny, but good enough to be getting on with. It's a start, at last.)

Vive la revolution!

Hi Textworlder, sounds interesting. I'm brand new to the forum, but not to the site itself; I would be keen to find out more.
