A new comedy by David Cantor & Michael Kingsbury.

Comedy’s no laughing matter…

‘Misleads’, ‘straight reverses’, ‘telegraphing’, ‘the rule of three’, ‘the law of C’, ‘jumping the shark’… these are the rules of comedy. You can’t just learn them. You have to live them.

Five strangers gather in the conference room of a shabby hotel on the outskirts of Farnham. Despite character differences, there is one thing that links Pam, Gavin, Morgan, Dale, and Amy…the ambition to realise their dreams through comedy.

Frank Donohue, the finest sitcom writer of his generation, has flown in from Los Angeles to conduct a seminar teaching his five lucky disciples the tricks of the trade, and how to write the perfect sitcom. During the class, their everyday lives are exposed revealing mix-ups, farcical revelations, and gut-wrenching tragedy.

Starring David Schaal (The Office, The Inbetweeners), Harry Visinoni (Coronation Street), Sarah Moyle (BBC’s Doctors), and Jasmine Armfield (EastEnders), Jumping The Shark is a celebration of the sitcom and its place in our hearts.

From the writers of BBC hits My Family, Two Pints of Lager & A Packet of Crisps, and co-creator of the West End and touring sensation Round The Horne… Revisited (“An Unstoppable Hit” – Daily Telegraph); for lovers of TV sitcoms this is a ‘must see’ for 2023!
