The 2nd Annual Stage 32 Happy Writers Comedy Writing Contest was filled with some of the best comedy writing we've ever seen. Our judges consistently said how tough the competition was!

Our feature writers had us laughing for (literally) hours! Our TV writers poured out some really creative and clever original pilots and wrote hilariously great specs for hit shows such as MODERN FAMILY, IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, FAMILY GUY and more.

Needless to say, the judges have been smiling from ear to ear! We're proud to announce the scripts that made it to the next stage in the 2nd Annual Stage 32 Happy Writers Comedy Writing Contest.

Join us as we congratulate these talented scribes, and celebrate with us on social media and tag us on Twitter: @stage32 and Instagram: @stage32online #stage32rocks
