The masterclass took place yesterday at BBC Television Centre - it was an informative and creative day giving the writers an opportunity to pitch their scripts and put their questions to BBC comedy commissioner, Cheryl Taylor, comedy writer and performer Adil Ray, and The Thick of It's Rebecca Front.
