Our North East Comedy Hot House project has been granted funds to develop the region’s comedy sector through our newly-created SIZZLE programme, a six month support programme working with SMEs, emerging comedy development producers and fresh comedy talent.
The SIZZLE programme has three phases of support including
- Business development

PEER TO PEER SUPPORT for NE SMEs led by the NE LEP.
Connecting business leaders & SMEs working in comedy production across digital platforms, to each other and to business and industry experts to support business growth.
Who is Phase 1 for?

They should currently work in the broadcast, digital, and/or comedy sector, or if not, must prove a keen interest in branching into these sectors. They must also be based in the North East LEP area.
