Pitch is the worlds best (only?) comedy writing app. Anyone can read jokes, but writers must be invited.
‘Pitch’ is a comedy writing app ideally for freelancers. It’s like a digital room where comedy writers could collaborate and work together. It launched last July at Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal and already has more than 1000 users.
One of the creators Matt Killman used to write for Funny Or Die. He said: “You read articles online about how to get a break into comedy but it’s very amorphous, you just find your way after doing it for a while and there’s no clear way to build,” he said. “It was all sort of relying on self-promotion and it’s all kind of impenetrable.”
Members must be invited to the free app by current users or send Klinman an application over email. It may seem a bit awkward to try and get an account but once you do you have the potential to get paid if you’re funny enough. The best work may appear in sketches. articles or even merchandise.
