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.

Sharing Your Comedy Video: My top Five Tips!

I’ve been making comedy videos for almost 10 years now. A viral comedy video got me an agent. Another one got me a part in a Channel 4 sitcom when one of the writers saw it retweeted on Twitter. But I don’t do it for the parts – I do it because I really enjoy taking control of my own content, making people laugh, and improving my skills.
