Well, that title caught your attention didn't it?
As you know, the National Lampoon brand was acquired by Palm Star Media last year and the new owners and management have been passionately seeking new comedy voices - We're thrilled that they partnered with Stage 32 and recognized our amazing community of talented writers as the place to find such talent through the Search for Comedy Gold Screenwriting Contest.
One word - The writing talent in this contest wasn't good, it was off the charts great. No lie, no hyperbole, our judges were constantly reaching out to say how much they enjoyed various scripts.
So let's get on to Richard Botto from Stage 32 & Robert Ogden Barnum from National Lampoon announcing the winner!
Congratulations to the Winner!
MY CLONE'S AN A-HOLE
Written by Julie Anne Wight
After her father replaces her with a clone to bring with him on the campaign trail, a spoiled, twenty-year-old walking trigger warning is locked away with the failed attempts to clone her, all of whom embody her worst flaws -- flaws which she must learn to conquer in order to reclaim her life from her father and the a-hole clone who's assumed her identity.
Julie will receive a paid option from National Lampoon PLUS put in their mentoring program with their executive team!
To all those who made the finals, all of us from National Lampoon and Stage 32 we wish you the very big thank you for participating!
