What were we looking for?

We were looking for new comedy talent who could take to the radio airwaves with a bang.

If you're a comedy performer, this could have been your chance to have your own series on BBC 7.

Who was eligible?

Anyone could enter, so long as you had no more than three years experience on the comedy circuit and you'd not had your own show broadcast nationally on Radio or TV.

Your had to be 18 years old or over to enter.

To enter, we asked you to fill out an online form, where you were asked to give us a brief outline of what you’d do if you had a 15 minute radio show of your very own on BBC 7.

We then wanted you to upload an audio clip of you being funny, of up to 5 minutes in length.


What happens next?

The best entrants will be invited to workshops that will be held across the UK.

Newcastle - November 30
Manchester - December 4
Glasgow - December 8
Cardiff - December 11
London - December 14
London - December 15

From those workshops we'll pick out the 10 best show ideas, develop them, produce them and then broadcast them on BBC 7 early 2007.

One of those shows will be chosen to have its very own four part series.
