SITCOM TRIALS - TIME TO VOTE (Everyone welcome)
Right everyone, all the scripts are in (sorry if you missed the deadline) now is the chance for you to vote and help decide which scripts go through to this month's Sitcom Trials at the Manchester Comedy Festival. There are 18 scripts in the files at the Sitcom Trials in contention for the Manchester show.
I'd like you all to read, review and vote on them now. You post your votes on the BSG form, and you vote YES, MAYBE or NO to every script you read, and give a Twitter length review of each to prove you've read it.
Deadline for votes Sat Oct 8th.
Tickets for the event itself, which is part of the Manchester Comedy Festival, only cost £3 and details are here.
Don't worry if you don't get to read them all. Your votes are counted Yes=2, MAYBE=1, NO= minus 1. So anything you don't vote on doesn't affect the figures. The scripts are:
