Listen back to some of the best comedy sketches from the Northern Ireland Comedy Writer’s Showcase.
With a huge amount of over fifty entries they had to be rounded down to just six final scripts. They were chosen on whose work showcased a unique celebration of the vibrant and creative comedy writing scene in the region.
