Anyone who's followed the Ed Byrne / Keith Chegwin spat on Twitter and beyond (I kid you not) will know that comedy is a very serious business and not to be taken lightly.
Many subbers here (including me) are far too precious about their work and don't take kindly to criticism. In fact I get really angry at not having any comments or stars on my subs and take it as a personal insult, making me believe that I'm generally disliked, that there's a conspiracy against me and my writing, lowering my self esteem into a slough of despair and forcing me back to the gin bottle for the nth time.
Mrs Brown's Boys is a prime example of how comedy can polarise opinion. I loved it. Others I know hated it. Ya can't please everyone so don't try to.
I can't remember who said it but the sage advice is to write stuff that YOU find funny, because unless you're clinically insane or French and Saunders, someone else, somewhere will find it funny too.
And they'll hopefully give it stars and positive comments and thereby save you from yet another empty bottle of Gordon's.
