Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) Access has launched the inaugural Comedic Voices Program which has its sights set on finding fresh, humorous voices for new late night and unscripted programming spaces.

The all-new program, open to emerging late night writers and unscripted producers from diverse communities and backgrounds, will consist of a one-week bootcamp focused on long-form monologue writing, celebrity voice writing and joke punch-ups.

“Our program is designed to position up and coming comedians for next-level career success,” said Karen Horne, SVP, Diversity + Equity + Inclusion. “We recognize that access continues to present barriers to performers from historically marginalized groups. So we’re creating opportunities for them to show what they can do in front of global audiences in order to propel the trajectory of their already promising careers.”

The Comedic Voices Program joins a growing list of WBD Diversity + Equity + Inclusion access initiatives created to give voice and opportunity to underrepresented groups in front of and behind-the-camera. It was designed to provide exposure for up and coming comedic voices to increase access to opportunities across WBD’s cable and television networks, and streaming platforms. The WBD Diversity + Equity + Inclusion team will team up with Turner Scripted (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee), Turner Unscripted and HBO to curate this exclusive opportunity.

Applications for the new initiative will be available stateside from June 6 through July 1 with the program beginning mid-October 2022. Apply here!
