‘CREATIVE WRITING’ – (FUNNY WOMEN AWARDS FINALIST TOP 3 COMEDY SHORTS 2022)

Lola is typing…

(Strap in!)

‘Creative Writing 2:1’ is a new 5 min comedy short about the horrors of modern love directed by Peter Lydon.

It stars Lola-  a hapless dreamer previously seen in LIFE IN ADHD (best web series nominee Edinburgh TV Fest New Voice Awards). In previous sketches we see her try to leave the house – ‘Filling’; try to meet a pal for a drink – ‘Russian Doll’; try to commute – ‘The World is not your oyster.’  In ‘Creative Writing’ we see her try to write a text. 

With Tik Tok/Linked in fave Rob Mayhew, Lou Taylor, Yasser Kayani, Ryan Duke, Jessica Chamberlain, writer Lorelei Mathias, Ch’lu (Camilla Mathias) and Tom Wragg. 

Thank you to David Reviews for this lovely 5 star review and for giving it pick of the day!

How did you first get interested in comedy?
In 1985, my brother had trouble saying my name so he called me Lol. I was five and about as funny as a cabbage, but the name stuck. Years later the internet happened and with it, chat-speak. Soon I was at pains to qualify every introduction with ‘it’s not because I think I’m funny’ as I was so shy!

It wasn’t until I was 25 and read the first reviews for my book that it occurred to me I actually mightbea bit funny. Reading that I was capable of making a…
