Fetch a Sketch

Deadline: Friday 7 September

Hull Comedy Festival

"Do you watch Little Britain, Catherine Tate or Mitchell and Webb, and think – "I could write better than that"? (We sometimes do!) Well, now's your chance.

The Hull Blokes, along with BBC Radio Humberside and the Hull and East Riding Mail are giving would-be writers a chance to have their material seen by hundreds of people at The Hull Comedy Festival.

You are invited to write a comedy sketch that will be performed by The Hull Blokes - one of the North's leading comedy/writing/drama groups - at their festival show on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of November at The Northern Academy of Performing Arts on Anlaby Road.

So, whether you're a Dead Ringer or a Monty Python in the waiting, put pen to paper and enter. Here are the rules:

  1. It has to be comedy
  2. It will be no more than 5 minutes in length
  3. It will be performed on stage, so don’t include a cast of thousands, elephants, flying bananas etc.
  4. The Hull Blokes will be the judges, and their decision will be final. It may be drunken, deluded and warped, but it will be final
  5. The sketches need to be submitted by 7th September to allow for the extensive rehearsal time your sketch deserves (and because it takes the Blokes that long to learn lines)

Scripts can initially be sent to hullblokes@hotmail.co.uk
