Will Poulter

School Of Comedy TV pilot

21 Aug, 2008

Poulter appears in a School Of Comedy pilot on Channel 4’s Comedy Labs. Characters include a filthy, profane receptionist, a cross-dressing Eastern European plumber, and a sexually repressed couple from the 1930s. On transitioning from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to television:

It was so weird, thinking that our after school club was going to end up on TV. It was so brilliant, something little like that, that we just did for fun, and people liked it enough and had enough confidence in it to put it on TV. Especially with comedy, and audiences response is so important, and to find out there were people out there who wanted to see it on TV every week was such an amazing thing, and we’re so grateful for that.
