All about the funny
AUDACIOUS was founded by award winning writer-producer-directors Kat Butterfield and Daniel Audritt,
a pair of scrappy young upstarts who don’t subscribe to the way things are usually done
- mainly cos we actually don’t know how things are usually done.
Drawing from our backgrounds in marketing and PR, along with independent filmmaking and YouTube directing, we know the importance of standing out and cutting through the noise and how to create something from nothing.
Like, literally nothing.
Our superpower is making high production value, cinematic, bloody brilliant-looking comedy on a shoestring. We fully disagree with the notion that comedy has to look like crap. We make comedy that’s bold, beautiful, distinctive, universal, relatable, accessible and above all, funny. Our ethos on set is collaborative, unpretentious, fun and ego-free and together with our teams, we bring a tenacious ‘beg, borrow, steal’ mentality into all that we do.
We love ideas that have a strong ‘hook’ that will resonate with a broad audience and have something to say about the world. We seek out and nurture the best comic talent the UK has to offer and let them shine.
