Here, courtesy of Nadine Allen's excellent camera and editing work, is the video from The Sitcom Trials So You Think You Write Funny heat 6 in London. I think you might enjoy this one...
London Heat 2 Fri June 14
- Medicine to Follow, Keyworth & Clompus
- You Banker, Richard Dowling
- Shirley’s Temple, Chen & Leigh
- Cuz Zombie, Belgrave & Coppin (animation)
- Cast, Peter Etherington
And the winner is... watch the video, it's worth the suspenseful wait. And like I say, you'll enjoy it.
Not that you won't enjoy the clips of our other shows, like this heat in Manchester and this one in Bristol, but you might notice with those that sometimes the audience is a bit quiet (eg ie Bristol) or the actors are reading from scripts in a radio style, albeit brilliantly, and the audience is a bit quiet (ie eg Manchester), or the video quality's a bit rubbish (that would be Bristol, shot by me, not Manchester which is shot in hi def by the fabulous Judgement Dave). But in the above video we have the triple whammy of laughter, quite nice lighting, fully staged sitcoms and - okay we have the quadruple whammy, including - Nadine's camera and editing. All I'm saying is when you look up "You had to be there" in the dictionary, that it'll say "most Sitcom Trials video clips". But in this instance you get quite a representative taste of a night of sitcoms.
Though there's a bit too much of me. I usually edit me out completely. Bad hair night, and diet ahoy. Ignore me and this is a nifty video clip, which includes the sitcoms, the running order and the results. We'll see you all at the semi finals.
