BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack – Series 12 Episode 5 – A Writing Credit

Well, it has been a long time.

Not just in the fact that I haven't posted here on the site in a while (it's a long story, that I will get to eventually, Kif) but a long time in regards to getting a credit on Newsjack. Well, rejoice, because overnight I got some good news!

I got a credit on Series 12 episode 5 of Newsjack. I've been constantly submitting since my last credit on S10E3 without much success. Starting with this series (12th) I have just been submitting one liners (with the exception of last week, episode 4, when I did not submit anything at all due to lack of Internet.)

My 7th credit overall. It's a bright spot in a bleak few weeks.

You can listen to the episode for the next 30 days at the BBC web page or download the podcast for the next 7 days.

In the event that you can't be bothered listening to the podcast, my joke is as follows:

Results are in for the Solar Eclipse. If you want to be able to see again, look away now.

Catch you next time,

Matt.

Writing Credit: NewsRevue – The Stage Show

So, now that the Newsjacking season is upon us I've been submitting to the show as usual.

But this year, in the run up to series 11, I decided to do a bit of a warm up and submit to a topical stage show that happens in London. Every week.

So I started submitting to NewsRevue at the end of August.

And last week, I heard that I got a credit on the show two weeks in a row.

(It's the same sketch that got on in both weeks, but I'm counting it as two credits, because each week stands alone.)

So if you want to see my credit, go on over to the British Comedy Guide and look at my first credit (for 2014 Run 6 Week 1) and second credit (for 2014 Run 6 Week 2). As there's a bit of a delay between actually getting a sketch on and finding out about it (because I'm not London based), if you want to see the sketch in action, you'll need a time machine. When you get hold of one, let me know. There's a couple of places in time that I'd like to go. (Unless, of course, I post the sketch once it's no longer earning me cashola.)

And if you want to submit, check out the NewsRevue website for details of what they're looking for.

Good luck to you in your writing endeavours.

Matt.

BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack – Series 10 Episode 3 – A Writing Credit

Series 10 is steaming ahead with week 3 being recorded last night and broadcast tonight. After getting nothing on the show last week, I'm back this week with another credit! 2nd of this series and 6th overall. I'm making it rain Licence Fee Money this series. Yay! And this credit is my 10th produced credit overall: 6 credits for Newsjack, 2 for Live From Kirrin Island and 2 for 4am Cab.

I got the "Congrats" email at 4.22pm this afternoon, but I've no idea what I got in. But it's cool that I got my 6th BBC writing credit. It's been 2 whole weeks since the last one on episode 1 of series 10.

BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack – Series 10 Episode 1 – A Writing Credit

Newsjack's back for another series (the 10th) of nailbiting nervousness from wannabe comedy writers. Starting with episode 1 tonight at 10.30pm on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

And lucky for me, because my nails are already short, I got something in the show.

I got the "Congrats" email at 4.30pm this afternoon, but I've no idea what I got in. But it's cool that I got my 5th BBC writing credit. Almost 12 months since the last one on episode 6 of series 8. (I didn't have any luck with series 9 last autumn, though I did post a lot of my one liners.)

You can see the episode page on the Newsjack website here.

4am Cab – Series 2 – Episodes 4 and 5 Writing Credits

We're 5 episodes into series 2 of the 4am Cab podcast, and I felt it was time to post about it.

At the begining of the year, 4am Cab opened for submissions for the second series. I sent off a sketch. The series started and the first 3 episodes were produced and posted online. The podcast opened the submission window again in the middle of the series, and I sent them another 2 sketches.

When episode 4 rolled around, I got a sketch on that was co-written by the very funny Cat Furniss. It's the bank Robber sketch that starts at about the 10 minute mark. Get the podcast.

When episode 5 rolled around, I was surprised to see that I got another credit. This time, the sketch that they used (although heavily rewritten) was the original one that I wrote and sent them back in March. The sketch is the multi-part sketch about the baby. Glad that sketch found a home. Get the podcast.

I've enjoyed the 4am podcast, not just because they give me a writing credit. My friend, Judgement Dave, also got a credit in episode 1 for his sketch Googling Life. Get the podcast.

Now, I'm just waiting to hear back about a sketch I submitted (and did a rewrite of) for Kirrin Island...

Hopefully, this'll stand me in good stead for the upcoming series 9 of Newsjack which starts on September 19th.

Newsjack: Series 8 Episode 6 – A Writing Credit

That's right, I've got another credit on the BBC.

I have a Newsjack Writing Credit on Series 8, episode 6.

This is my fourth on the credit show after Series 6 episode 6, Series 7 episode 1 and exactly a calendar month after Series 8 Episode 2.

Amazingly, I've managed to make the recording script for 50% of all shows this series. A credit in episode 2, cut from the final edit in episode 3, and now a credit in the final show of the 8th series. I'm really happy. I think my writing is improving. Well I hope it is.

Newsjack: Series 8 Episode 2 – A Writing Credit

That's right, I managed to distract the gate keepers at the BBC long enough to scurry into to the offices and deposit a load of jokes.

For I have a Newsjack Writing Credit on Series 8, episode 2.

This is my third credit after Series 6, episode 6 and Series 7, episode 1. And even more exciting than that, the episode after my last credit, they started reading out the writing credits at the end of the show. So I might even hear my name on the radio!

Only another 8 or so credits to go and I've got my Licence fee money for 2013 back.

So, only a week after Valentines Day, let my joke(s) be the soundtrack to your lovemaking. Tune in to BBC Radio 4 Extra at 22:30 on Thursday 21 February. Click here for the online streamy thing and click here for the podcast download (podcast episode available for 7 days after broadcast).
