Based on the same principles as the hugely successful Film Network, Soup (bbc.co.uk/soup [url not yet working]) provides a virtual stage for both comedy amateurs and aficionados.There's more background in a post on this blog last November.
It offers them a virtual stage on which to learn their art and perform their material, including tips from Soup's expert guides and BBC video, audio and images to help them create and perfect their work.
Users create a profile on the site, to which they can they link material, effectively creating an online portfolio for talent-spotters.
