Do you think you could write a sitcom? Not just a fan fic but a sitcom, with characters, a story and stuff.

Could you be funny enough to make enough jokes for 12 episodes of a series?

I don't know, actually. Everytime I see an episode of Futurama, I come to think of a joke or two that might fit in, and if you put them all together, it could be enough for two or three episodes. But not for an entire season. certainly not!  smile

Well, programs like Futurama and The Simpsons have about 20 writers per episode. I don't think I could but I could make a contribution. Your not thinking of actually making something are you?

Sounds like alot of work to me I'd prefer just to think of an idea and let others do the work for me and make lots of money for me a la Matt Groening.

I think I could definately write a sitcom.  Not saying that I'm really great, but 99% of everything is utter crap and I could at least be on par with that  big grin

Plus I have lots of great ideas for sitcoms that will hopefully be cancelled right away but still have a "cult" following.

I love those 6-week wonders.
The 13-week wonders are crap though.

Me and Velour are sitcom geniuses. We could knock out 12 episodes by the end of the week.
