Margaret-Anne Docherty has sent us this heads up about the new BBC Radio Scotland Comedy Stand-Up Workshop:

Hello my name's Margaret-Anne Docherty and I'm the senior producer in charge of Radio Comedy.

I just wanted to tell you about an opportunity that BBC Radio Scotland Comedy are offering over the Glasgow Comedy Festival. It's a stand up workshop with a difference - we are looking for people who think that they can write and perform topical/satirical material.

Scotland is changing and evolving politically and we think that our satirical side should get an airing, and we don't mean in a parochial way - it should be Scotland looking at itself and the World.

I suppose we are looking for the next Armando Iannucci and, believe me, if we find the right kind of people we will be delighted to get into a development process with them.

So if you think you fit the bill and you've got something you really want to say find out how to apply and have a read of the terms and conditions.

Entries can be submitted from 15 March - midday 26 March 2012.

Best of Luck to all!
