in 2016 Colleen Ballinger-Evans’ tone-deaf, egotistical, self-absorbed YouTube character “Miranda” swore that she was born famous ….
Well, finally, Miranda got her big break with her own Netflix TV show and world tour.
What we here in grintage want to know is whether there is an Irish male or female performer; duo or new sketch team bold enough and bloody funny enough to break through big time?? … and not just the local viral market … we mean the world …
So if you are currently thinking of or focused on a comedy career with big dreams, large ambition and huge faith … and understand the small screen broadcast medium .. the upside and the downside of fame ….. or know a talent … then take that leap of faith … grintage is at your disposal with experienced comedy script execs, producers, directors and all the facilities a tv channel offers…. and more. Sideline Productions have developed a Foil Arms & Hog project with BBC Comedy; produced a Rubberbandits pilot for Channel 4 and produce Comedy Showhouse (34 x half hour comedies) for RTE Radio1 with a wide array of Irish performers and writers inc. FA & H; Al Porter; Deirdre O’Kane; Sean Hughes; The Nualas; Amy Huberman; Karl Spain & Colm O’Regan.
Colm O’Regan Wants a Word was the winner of the PPI Award 2016 for Best Irish Radio Comedy.
So please send 60 second clips, biogs and photos – or links of performers you rate – to ‘message’ on our Facebook page or to email@example.com …
