Thanks Gjp. The German hangover sketch was great. Although the actor's German accent was, for want of a better word, sketchy.
Do you write for any other shows or things?
In the past I had credits on open door shows Tilt and Recorded for Training. Also, have had pieces on a couple of shows on Radio Scotland going back about 10 years, one of which has turned into a regular thing which I still contribute to and get something used most weeks. I've even had 5 or 6 tv credits on a BBC Scotland sketch show which airs every Hogmanay. There has also been about 2 million rejections but the tiny bits of success make it worthwhile.

I really liked the Coro one and hangover one. The sketchy accent made it more hilarious for me.
Curious - how many words were in your original German sketch roughly? Am interested in lengths as they always sound quite long on the show. The doctor's one was shorter though.
Thanks BTF. My original sketch was pretty much exactly 2 pages long, including intro. The 1st page was almost word for word on show then the rest of sketch was almost completely rewritten. I'd say it was probably twice as long as my original. I liked what they did with it. It definitely built to a funnier sketch than my original.
