How we got a Channel 4 Comedy Lab show made

James Shakeshaft and David L E Davis managed to get their show, Hung Out, made by Channel 4's Comedy Lab. Here's how they did it...

James Shakeshaft and David L E Davis, Den Of Geek, 20th May 2010

Hung Out desperately wanted to be Peep Show, but lacked its quality. A house-share sitcom, its dialogue was realistic - but so much so that it wasn't always terribly funny.

Robert Epstein, The Independent, 25th April 2010

Hung Out is a house-share sitcom in which character and plot are substituted with that stoppy-starty Peep Show way of talking that only works in Peep Show because it is also brilliantly written.

Comedy Lab: Hung Out review

There's a nice bundle of ideas sitting at the heart of the Hung Out. The best is not a million miles away from the thinking that fuelled My Name Is Earl, concerning two guys, James and Dave, who decide to come up with a spreadsheet to keep track of what one owes the other.
