Work With Us

We work with comedy writer/performers who are currently working in, or are looking to return to, live performance.

From new voices to established acts, we support acts that want to bring their next big idea - however bold, daring or seemingly impossible - to life.

Why we’re different...

  • Our team has produced nearly 60 hour-long shows, with a proven track record of supporting acts in creating fulfilling, challenging and personal projects that push their careers to the next level.

  • Our approach is holistic and based in creative collaboration, pulling together talented teams - from directors to flyerers - to ensure our acts feel supported and able to make their best work.

  • Our perspective is long-term, as we guide our acts through developing projects that exceed their expectations and are ready to be translated into radio and TV.

We champion a range of voices with different life experiences and points of view. If you feel like you have an idea that you’re itching to explore, get in touch. You can invite us to see you perform, or send us a video.

 

 

Production Jobs

We are currently hiring for the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe:

Street Team Manager - Deadline: April 26th

The STM is responsible for all of our flyering team, making sure that everyone is happy & not overworked, and that all our acts are getting the audiences that they deserve. You’ll issue rotas, train up the team, and keep everything moving towards sold out shows.

Street Team - Applications accepted on a rolling basis, with interviews in early May.

The lifeblood of our Fringe, the Street Team spread the word about Berk's Nest shows by flyering for them. We value the people we work with, treat them well and pay them fairly, and make sure everyone has a brilliant time - a number of our team from last year's Fringe are returning this year.

Stage Managers - Deadline: April 15th

Our stage managers/technicians/show operators make the shows actually happen. We have lots of shows this year that need techs, ranging from the technically ambitious (live music! projection! lots of cues!) to more lo-fi stand-up, but for every show we want our acts to be working with the safest pair of hands possible. Ideally you'll have experience of working as a tech in a festival environment, but it's far more important that you're reliable, hard-working, and a problem-solver, and have experience working with acts.
