The BBC and Northern Film & Media are about to launch Jesting About 2 – a BBC North comedy talent initiative. Funny folk from the North East are invited to send comedy ideas, scripts and productions to the BBC to be considered for development into a TV sitcom, radio sketch show or online comedy project.
Peter Salmon (Director, BBC North) and Bob Mortimer (Comedy Legend)
“Some of the funniest people I have ever met come from the North East, but not enough of them are recognised… Let’s try to change this and make the North East the comedy capital of the UK.”
I reckon there might be a few undiscovered comedians at Potts Print (UK) – so I’ll be heading along to the launch this Wednesday (2nd November) at The Stand Comedy Club to find out all about this year’s search for talent. Just give me a shout if you want to get involved.
Meanwhile, there’s plenty of info about last year’s winners on Google: http://bit.ly/trTWXI
Happy Monday 😉
