Have we found the next Miranda? Sourced the new Friends? Unearthed the next Basil Fawlty?
The Sitcom Trials - the situation comedy showcase that has been running since 1999 - is once more teaming up with the Gilded Balloon and the legendary So You Think You're Funny competition at the Edinburgh Fringe in a quest to find the best new sitcom creators in the country.
The evening will consist of up to 8 performances: all ending in nail biting cliff-hangers. The audience will then vote for which one they want to see the ending to.
Reviews for the show have ranged from the Leicester Mercurys "We were screaming with laughter... move over Friends", through the London Evening Standards "We're not watching stand-up, we're watching comedy history", to Metro's notorious review of the 2002 Edinburgh Fringe show: "I would happily have voted to have my own eyes gouged out with hot spoons rather than endure another moment." The most recent review reads Sitcom Trials: ★★★★ "You will not be disappointed" - The Public Reviews, Bristol Trials.
