Stage 32 Joins Forces With National Lampoon to Find the Next Great Comedy WriterRead more here

We're thrilled to be partnering and joining forces with National Lampoon to find the next great comedy writer.  National Lampoon is, of course, one of the most iconic names in comedy and the new ownership of Co-CEO's Raj Singh, and Kevin Frakes and award winning producer, Robert Barnum, are ready to take the brand to new heights.  The National Lampoon crew is committed to finding new, diverse and original voices and we're honored that they have recognized Stage 32's global talent pool as the deepest anywhere in the world, and the only place in which to find their next great comedy screenplay.

This partnership continues our never ending mission to give all of our driven and dedicated members around the world unparalleled access and opportunity.

We will be announcing our Grand Prize winner during the American Film Market (AFM) this fall.  The winning writer will be given a $5,000 option and be immediately placed under mentorship with National Lampoon's executive team. 

My personal thanks to Raj, Kevin and Rob - 3 true visionary gentlemen - for their passion and commitment to making this incredible initiative and opportunity come to fruition.
