PIC would love to hear your Dramatic Readings of any of our Comedy Articles, whether it's your article or someone else's. If you're looking for articles to perform, some good styles to browse are our Open Letters, Speeches, and Scripts. You can also view all of our article topics by category.
Important: Put some serious character into your performance! We’re looking for a colorful and dynamic approach to readings; some ad libbing from the text version is fine too. This form is only for readings of articles that have already been accepted via our Comedy Articles form, or published on PIC. We're mostly looking for readings under 6 minutes long.
Experienced performers: If you have experience in live performance—whether in acting, comedy, radio, etc—and are interested in reading articles awaiting publication within a 3- to 10-day timeline, please contact us and let us know so we can work together! We aim to publish a limited number of articles and their readings at the same time, increasing overall exposure to the accompanying readings.
Audio recording tips: Recording a voice memo on your phone in a quiet room is the simplest and most effective method to do a reading. If you want to get a little more technical, check out the programs Audacity (free) or Garageband (free; Mac only). No need to speak the title or anything other than the text of the article in your reading, unless it's very important for context. Feel free to add music or special effects if you have proper licensing or copyright to do so, otherwise we will take care of music and sound editing on our end.
