The 1st Heat of 2016's Sitcom Trials - So You Think You Write Funny took place in London on June 2nd at Ophelia, Dalston. Click to watch the video highlights.
The sitcoms in contention were:
Father God by Tasha Dhanraj
Latched On by Victoria Morris & Clare Clifford
Like-A-Looks by Vanessa-Faye Stanley & Kate Bowes-Renna
Singularities by Kat Sadler
And the winner of the audience vote was... Like-A-Looks. We hope you enjoy the video, it's testament to the highest standard of writing and performance, and a jam-packed audience, full to standing room only. Thanks to everyone who came.
This result doesn't determine which sitcoms will be going on to the Grand Final in Edinburgh in August. We have to wait until the end of the 6th heat to be able to say which 5 sitcoms will be chosen. An agonising process for all concerned, we thank you for your patience.
