Ah, the cockles of my heart – how they are warmed.
Created in Birmingham doesn’t tend to cover comedy very much although, as people have pointed out, there’s no lack of creativity going on with it.Â The problem is that, although I come across plenty of listings, there’s been no-one (that I’ve found) writing passionately and consistently about the city’s comedy scene.
Until now – enter Who’s Laughing Now?:
With news, listings, features and a kind of curation area for YouTube vids, it’s been launched to coincide with the Birmingham Comedy Festival and is the brainchild of Rich Batsford and Simon Harper.
The site has been created with the intent of developing the comedy scene in the area and is more or less an open forum – we are very happy for all local promoters to send in previews of their events.
We are also on the lookout for other writers or budding journalists who are interested in publishing reviews through the site. Whilst thereâ€™s no money on offer, its all good experience and we would expect to be able to get free show tickets for our contributors when they are reviewing a show. Are you interested? – please contact us
I’m really chuffed to see this and think there’s a whole heap of potential here, so good luck to them.
