Channel 4 launch comedy blaps

EVIL 1.jpg

While being known as "the funny one" at work is nice and all, it's better to have some actual proof that people find you genuinely hilarious.

To help these unappreciated comedians get some love, Channel 4 have launched an initiative called Comedy Blaps. It's a way of new writers, performers and animators to get a break and also for established performers to be seen in a new light.

They've received over 500 pitches since March and now the first four mini-series are available. We've got the first episode of Evil Kweevil here. It's about a maggot that's into stunts. Yes, you heard us:
