I'm sending out such proud and heartfelt congratulations to my stand up comedy course at Komedia Brighton graduate the brilliant Jade Gebbie (second from the left). Jade has just joined the BBC as a comedy writer on a one year contract. She will spend the next year writing for their comedy shows, including Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Dead Ringers. Exciting year ahead!
My stand-up graduate comedy writer Tash Dhanraj was given this one year comedy writer's contract last year. I'm so incredibly chuffed that it's gone to one of my Komedia Brighton comedy course graduates again this year. And I'm so happy for Jade who I know will also really make the most of this fantastic opportunity and continue to make us all so proud. I just love it when these things happen.
