Attention anyone who might be in Leicester this weekend, I'll be around for an hour or so from 1pm on Saturday 16 Feb at Peter Pizzeria talking about how to get in to the business of comedy writing (Spoiler alert: It's not easy but not impossible) If you'd like to meet me and chat, or if you have any questions it would be good to see you there. https://comedy-festival.co.uk/venue/peter-pizzeria/

Your best bet is probably to send it to the BBC script room.

They're looking for new comedy writers next month.

"The next Script Room will be for comedy scripts. The submission window will be open from 10am on Monday 1st April 2019 to 5pm on Monday 29th April 2019."

Good luck!
