News: CBBC Adapts Cult Comedy Show for Children

CBBC is adapting a cult comedy hit to be made into a children's show.

CBBC's Monster Court is based on the improvised mock legal stage spoof, This Is Your Trial, in which comics would defend their various positions.

At Monster Court, kids, parents, friends, relatives, even teachers can finally get some justice for all those monstrous “crimes” that normally go unpunished!

You can make your accusation on a video call with Judge Smudge himself. The monstrous person you are accusing will be there to defend themselves, along with any “witnesses”. Then Judge Smudge will reach his verdict and deliver some SERIOUS SMUDGEMENT!

Children can apply to take part and find out more details here.

David Allison, who came up with This Is Your Trial, is also "trialing" two other shows this weekend on October 3 at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes.

At 4.30pm it's ComedyAuction then at 8pm it's SickNote.

SickNote has been developed with the talents of Thom Tuck, Trevor Lock, Helen Duff, Sarah Bennetto, Ben Van Der Velde, Katie Pritchard, Izzy Mant and Brendan Murphy. Audience members can apply for a sicknote and 'Trainee doctor' comedians seek to impress the host Consultant with diagnostic theories and tests.

ComedyAuction was already established after Edfringe last year. Audience members are each given 500 Auction Dollars with which to bid and 'expert' comedians persuade audience members to bid for curious objects with their stories.

Both shows are formatted improv with lots of audience participation and three comedians playing different roles.
