Writing Comedy on the Internet for Fun and Profit - 23 November

More and more people are turning to the web to make their comedic mark - and some are finally making it financially worth their while.

On Wednesday 23 November, the Writers' Guild will host an event where you can meet three people who have already made their mark on the web.

  • George Poles created the hugely successful Welcome To Albia blogsite, recommended by The Guardian under their 'top 10 comedy websites'.
  • Nick Hildred writes, edits, produces and even occasionally performs in Whack My Bush, the weekly satirical online show that in a short space of time has attracted more than 30,000 listeners a week.
  • Dougal Templeton runs a publishing company who have just won the contract to produce a new BBC comedy website - BBC Soup, that launches next year, and is actively seeking writers to work on it.
The evening will be hosted by Guild member comedian and writer Dave Cohen, there'll be plenty of time for questions and a chance to network.

The event takes place at Camden People's Theatre on Hampstead Way (just over the road from Warren St and Euston Square tubes). Meet for drinks from 6.30pm on Wednesday 23 November. Talk begins at 7.45pm. Tickets are £5 for Guild members and £10 for non-members. For further information, or to book, contact Naomi MacDonald on
