So comedy creators, you are doing 2 things here in the Punkanary Production Studio:
1) Reaching 500 fans, and
2) Making at least 4 episodes / sketches of content for your show
But fear not, because we are here with some handy tips and tricks to help you smash those targets. Clown School may sound like a boring page, and you might be feeling a tad geeky for venturing here in the first place, but you are the lucky ones who have stubmled across some comedy creating nuggets.

What content to make
Any comedy content you want. As long as a group of fans will love it.
If you are new to the creative scene and don't have a big team and budget behind you, we suggest keeping it as simple and short as possible. Make sure the character or characters (no need to have more than one or two) are damn funny and as sharp and honed as possible.
There's nothing wrong with making longer content, but there is something wrong with filler that doesn't add anything to the story or make the audience laugh and just seems to go on and on and on before people start to switch off and as soon as they have done that there is no getting them back and you wish you had finished your sentence so much earlier...
You may have noticed a box for collaborating when you set up a new comedy show, or used the search function. That's because collaborating is the Popeye spinach of all creative shows. Without it your show is just a washed up old sailor with a massive chin. With it your show can defeat bluto. Hold on where was I?
Collaborating is everything to a show so we make it easy for you to find your people. Don't let not having a cameraman or a writing partner or actress or animator stop you making your thing. Tell people what you are looking for on your show page and make sure you respond to enquiries that come your way. There's thousands of creators with different skills hanging around these here parts, so make use of them!
