Calling All Local Wannabe Comedy Writers

Has Verwood & East Dorset Got Satire?

Forest FM embarks on an ambitious new collaborative comedy project. If you're a lover of popular topical broadcast comedy shows like Have I Got News for You, Mock The Week or you are a fan of observational stand-up and think you could do as well, if not better – then, Forest FM want to hear from you, as part of a new ground breaking, collaborative project. Britain's Got Satire aims to offer new local comedy writing talent the chance to learn and work with experienced professional comics to create a new topical show for community radio and online TV. This will be performed and filmed at one of London's longest established and revered comedy venues (The Downstairs Comedy Club at the Kings Head, Crouch End, N8) in front a live audience with clips broadcast on Forest FM 92.3 and a full 30 minute version of the show available for viewing via online TV. Up until the 10th of April 2016, we are inviting budding local comedy writers to put forward 2 minutes of topical satire that they've created themselves either on video or by written submission via our website. After a series of task orientated knockout rounds the best entrants will be tutored from their home and will then collaborate with the Britain's Got Satire performance team via interactive online video conference link to create, on the day of performance (27th of April 2016), a new 30 minute topical comedy show virtually written from scratch that day.“ To raise the money to make Britain's Got Satire into a weekly radio and TV series we've created a rewards led, Chuffed crowdfunding campaign (full details available via the ‘support us' page of the website).
