Put your funny to the sketch test

Top Story! Weekly is looking for comedy writers to join its staff.

Top Story! Weekly is an hour-long, Main Stage sketch show based on the week's news. It is where "hard news meets Hollywood." It is also where writers hone and showcase their witty wares.

Other Top Story members have worked or work at all the major networks (including cable) and alongside some of the most celebrated comics from Billy Crystal to Conan O'Brien.

To audition, email a sketch packet, consisting of three topical or newsworthy sketches, and a resume to no later than Monday, April 16, 2012. 

Writers who are selected will be notified on April 24, 2012.

As you compile your packet, attend a live Top Story! Weekly show, check out Top Story's many videos on youtube and read this NPR article on the art of being funny.

For more information, visit Top Story! Weekly or email

Good luck!
