It's official. Our brand new short film, Today's the Day, has been released.

The mini-drama gives us a sneak peak into the life of Sally. Every morning, she goes jogging - and every morning, she sees him. Her perfect man.

She fantasises about the happy life they will share together, from their first date right through to their old age. Now all she needs to do is ask him out.

How hard can it be?

Watch a trailer for the short now on our dedicated Today's the Day page. And, if you would like to see the whole film, please get in contact directly.

Last month, the script for the film was awarded 'Finalist' at the Hollywood Just 4 Shorts competition. And we have high hopes that the film itself will do just as well, with some festival screenings in 2018. Watch this space...

Following our storming (citation needed) debut shows at Diminishing Returns, Comedy Virgins and Party Piece in September, Birds is back. Are back? Is back.

We've got brand spanking new comedy sketches, and we'll be premiering them at the absolutely legendary London comedy venue Downstairs at the King's Head.

On Thursday 9th November, you can see a new five-minute Birds set at the venue's famous Try Out Night, launchpad of some of the UK's biggest comedy stars.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets - on the door - cost just £4. That's less than the price of a beer. Bloody London.

The Try Out Night has been a fixture on the UK circuit since 1986. There will 16 comedy acts on the bill - a mix of new acts and old hands, sketch and stand up - with each doing five minutes. All MCed by comedian Matt Green.

So come along. It'll be a laugh - promise. Oh, and it's usually a sell out, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

P.S. Can't make it on 9th November? Don't worry. You can also catch Birds at Party Piece on 21st November.

Find out more about the Try Out Night on Thursday 9th November here.
