|Revealed: Line-up of experts at Chortle's event for comics
|The full timetable has now been announced for Chortle's Comedy Conference.
Aimed at new and aspiring comedians, or those with a couple of years' experience under their belt, the event will feature an esteemed line-up of live bookers and promoters, agents, TV and radio producers and commissioners, and experts on tax and law – all offering invaluable advice and contacts to help progress through the comedy industry.
Comedian Richard Herring will share his experience of more than 20 years in the industry, while Friday Night Dinner writer Robert Popper – who has a varied and impressive CV in comedy – will reveal his tips on the creative process.
There will be the chance to ask questions of all the panelists, and mingle with some of them over coffee and lunch, as well as getting the inside track on how the comedy world works and vital career pointers.
Tomorrow is the early-bird deadline for discounted tickets to the day-long event at London's Soho Theatre on June 13. Admission includes refreshments and a buffet lunch.
Additionally, Chortle will subsidise at least five bursary places for those out of work or on low incomes (although not students in full-time education unless there are exceptional circumstances) at just £15 each. To apply for one of these places, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your circumstances and what steps you have already taken to get into comedy.
There are a few sessions still to be finalised, but the timetable is below.
