12 Comedy Sketches (Series 2) Script Writing Competition

With ‘12 Comedy Sketches in a London House’ complete, it's time to start the ball rolling on series 2. Once again we are offering three of these sketches to all you budding comedy writers. This is another great opportunity to have your ideas developed and filmed as part of a series to be watched by thousands!

But there is a twist, we have moved locations. Now instead of 12 sketches in 12 rooms, it's 12 sketches in just 1 room! Well, 1 'Shed' to be precise. That's right, series 2 will be... ‘12 Comedy Sketches in a SHED’.


If your entry is chosen you will:

  • Have your script transformed into a professionally filmed sketch to be included '12 Comedy Sketches in a Shed'
  • Be credited as the writer, and given a copy of the filmed sketch to start, or further, your career as a professional comedy writer.
  • Be on-set when your script is being filmed and have a chance to join the core ‘12 Comedy Sketches’ writing team.
  • Be in with a chance to win £300

Once filmed, we want the audience to vote on which of the three winning scripts is their favourite. The winning script with the highest votes will receive £300 in cash.

Dan took the time to respond with great detail about my proposed sketch. Many others would’ve wacked off a few general points, but he was very helpful.
