Comedy

Comedy at Channel 4 should be original, bold, and distinctive with a real sense of authorship. Recent output includes Catastrophe, Man Down, Raised By Wolves, Peep Show, Friday Night Dinner, Toast of London, Chewing Gum and Bad Robots (prank show).

Channel 4 has a special relationship with new talent and we are more likely to take risks on unknown comedians and writers than any other broadcaster. So alongside championing brilliant and original writing, we aim to find and launch the next generation of great comic performers.

Individual talent or emergent writers will inevitably need the backing of a PACT-registered or established production company. A fantastic script is the first crucial stage in making a great show, but you'll also need skilful casting, production, direction and post-production. The production company and you can then pitch the idea, as a full package, to the Commissioning Editors. Channel 4 cannot accept unsolicited scripts from members of the public.
