2020 Comedy Shorts Award Shortlist Announced!

The standard of entries across this year’s Comedy Shorts Award has been so high that we have extended our Top 10 to a Top 12!

I am absolutely delighted that each of the videos on the shortlist represent a variety of genres, styles and topics, and some feature material inspired by this year’s coronavirus lockdown too.

I know that our Head Judge Andi Osho and the panel of independent judges are going to not only have a lot of fun reviewing each of them, but also a tough job to whittle them down even further! Many congratulations to all of those who have made the shortlist today.

Why We Protest

Protest. It’s one of the first things we do. That cry all newborns make when they’re born? That’s them protesting being pulled from the lovely warm womb and out into this cruel harsh world. In fairness, I’d be livid too; I hear it’s nice in there. We’re born protesting and I think it’s one of the things that makes us human.

The Guide: December

AS IF the year is nearly over. If I were to give the year marks out of ten, I would be on the receiving end of an angry phone call from the year’s mother because the year had come home from school crying, and I would tell the year’s mother that she can’t shout me into a giving the year a better grade, because I’m a good teacher actually but there’s only so much you can do when your child is hellbent on being this much of an asshole. Does that make sense?
