Sitcom Trials Bristol April 4th report
The sitcoms in contention were
"Amen" by Gwen Cheeseman, Jen Cockburn, Aja Scanlon and Ella Vize
"A Civil Defence Matter" by Joe Brand
"Good Grief" by Rupert Aspden
"Pub" by the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre
"And the Lord Said" by James Alleyne.
And the winner, announced by tonight's brilliant co-hosts Naomi Carter and Laura Ollerton, was Good Grief by Rupert Aspden, an impressive medical comedy, performed by John Lomas and Naomi with Kevin Restall (who last appeared in the Trials way back in 2006, welcome back).
You can see, from the group photo, that the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre guested with their sitcom Pub, and came joint fourth along with the others (Good Grief really did win by a landslide).
Will the Bristol Sitcom Trials survive without Vince? Who knows? Watch this space.
