Contribute To The British Comedy Guide

Union Jack Flag Thank you for showing an interest in getting involved in The British Comedy Guide .

The ultimate aim of this website is to provide an in-depth guide to every British comedy ever made. That's every episode, every character, every actor, every key crew member, every DVD release, every web reference, every bit of news, every everything basically!

With such an ambitious aim, we're clearly need a lot of help and assistance, and we're hoping you may be able to be one of these people...

Writing about British comedy can be great fun. Unfortunately, because we are working off a zero budget, we can't pay for contributions - however getting involved can still be very rewarding. For starters you'll be able to help educate tens of thousands about your favourite comedies. Plus, in some cases, contributing may very well open up exciting new opportunities for you.

There is no pressure or deadlines involved - this isn't work! If you are interested, you'll soon discover it is completely up-to-you when and how often you want to submit content.

Listed below are the areas we need help with...

Main Contributing Areas
Transferring Existing Content

Transferring Existing Sitcom.co.uk Content

We are currently in the process of transferring the last of our old sitcom.co.uk guides into our new database. This is a long and labourious job, made worse by the fact that a fair bit of the existing content needs improving and/or expanding before it is transferred.

Programme Guides

Programme Guides

We are looking for people to write guides to their favourite comedies (which includes character and episode guides). We now have people writing about the best known comedies, but if you are a fan of something obscure we could really do with your help!

Actor / Crew Biographies

Actor / Crew Biographies

We are also looking for background pieces on every actor and crew member for our new profile pages. If you're interested in writing biographies of your favourite stars / writers do let us know.

Researcher

Versatile Researcher

If you have strong research skills, good attention to detail, good English and don't mind what you write about we'd love you to join our task force! We're forming a fairly dedicated team who will be able to help us plug the gaps in our database.

News Reporter

News Reporter

We're looking to expand our news team to ensure we provide a more comprehensive and up-to-the-minute news service. This role will involve keeping an eye out for relevant stories (or, even better, seeking them out) and then writing up anything you do find and publishing it on our system as quick as possible.

Special Skills Jobs
Feature Article

Feature Article Writer

We're looking to provide comedy related comment, opinion and insight too. If you think you are a strong feature writer or have some insight for us do let us know. Note: ideally you will have some authority in this area - i.e. be connected to the industry in some way, but it's not essential.

Graphic Artist

Graphic Artist

Do you have an artistic flare when it comes to computer-based graphics? We're looking for some new graphics for our website (e.g. better icons, illustrations to decorate some of our features, banner adverts etc etc). Would you be interested in supplying some?

Video and Audio Production

Video and Audio Production

Eventually (but not yet) we are planning to branch out into recording our own podcasts and filming our own comedy. If you have some knowledge in this arena and might be willing to help when the time comes do please mention this to us so we can bear you in mind.

If any of the above areas sound like something you'd be interested in getting involved with,
we'd love to hear from you. Do please get in touch .
