My Newsjack Series 7 Episode 3 submissions

Rather tired with recording Live from Kirrin Island on Saturday and also trying to get everything sorted for moving house (excuses, excuses!) so only managed to send two rushed sketches and four one liners to Newsjack this week.

My sketches were on

  • Ed Milliband trying to get on a TV comedy show like Letterman
  • A story about the plate tectonics of the Indian Ocean… you gotta cover the big ones (!).

    Im still waiting to see a sketch or a oneliner of yours on the page so I can get an idea of the format and generally how a finished successful piece looks. For me to get a message off you saying something like ‘this week i sent off 2 sketches and a oneliner’ is not very interesting is it? I want to see the things.

    Um, hi Franco. Thanks for the comment. Sorry if I’m boring you!

    The best way to find out what a successful piece is like is to… listen to the show. Write it out yourself line by line if you have to. What gets on is the best guide to what gets on. Also some people have posted plenty of their sketches, both successful and otherwise on the British Comedy Guide writers forum.

    If you just want to know about formatting have a look at the BBC writers room, but they won’t be too worried about it.

    If I have a moment later this week I’ll try and post up a couple of old bits, successful and otherwise.

    Dan – It’s hard for me to argue with that… at least not without sounding passive aggressive.
