The Sitcom Trials
The Sitcom Trials is the comedy show where brand new sitcoms compete and the audience chooses the winner.
Five short sitcoms will be performed with scripts in hand, each one leading up to a cliffhanger that will leave the audience wanting to see more. In between each sitcom will be "Pitch Fest", where we ask the audience for their ideas for brand new sitcoms, and the best idea will win a prize.
Created, produced and presented by Kev F Sutherland, The Sitcom Trials began on stage in London and Bristol in 1999, and has enjoyed successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, national and international touring shows, and an 8 part TV series on ITV1. In 2008 the Sitcom Trials won the Fringe Report Award for Best Encourager of New Talent.
Performers who have appeared in The Sitcom Trials over the years include Miranda Hart, Neil Mullarkey, Richard Vranch, and the Comedy Store Players, Tony Robinson (Baldrick), Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees Cariad Lloyd, Waen Shepherd, and Laura Solon, James Holmes, Justin Lee Collins, , Steve McNeil & Sam Pamphilon, Sara Pascoe, Russell Howard, Mark Olver, Aaron Barschak, Emily Lloyd, Danny Robins, Dan Tetsell, The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, Lucy Porter, Nick Ewans, Louisa Gummer, Anne-Marie Draycott, Dan March, Rich Johnston, Wanda Opalinska, Gerard Foster, Charity Trimm, Dominic Frisby, McNeil and Pamphilon.
