£150 a minute


No that's not the cost of the new sex line Amy and I are running! It's the money you can earn writing material for comedy shows - sweet!

My friend Chris is working on a pilot for a new sketch show and he needs material. If i manage to write something that makes it on to the show they will pay £150 for every minute that the material features.

I've got a few ideas so we'll see what happens - my fav is a character that speaks really slowly and takes 15 minutes to tell one joke (hmmmmmm somehow i think the producers might see through that one).

It is time to put pen to paper or rather finger to keyboard to see what i can make happen.

I'll keep you posted.

and Ronnie Barker got 6 years out of a stuttering character on Open All Hours -- so there's hope
