Shouting Is Funny are an audio production company, creating original audio fiction. We formed the company in 2020, but we've been working together closely since 2018, after meeting on the Actor-Musicianship BA Honours degree at Rose Bruford College in London, UK. Since then, we've been experimenting with audio-storytelling, exploring how we could utilise our skills in the world of audio drama.

Upon graduating Rose Bruford in the midst of a global pandemic, we decided to put our focus into something creative that we could pursue from home. Shouting Is Funny was born. What inspired the name, you ask? In our early days of creating 'comedy', we did indeed believe that shouting was all it took. We like to think we've matured since then, if only slightly.

In December 2020 we launched our debut episode as a professional company: 'Fandango Boursin and the Christmas Spirit'. It was completely produced in isolation due to Covid restrictions and we had to work in an entirely new way. It was a trial by fire, but from the ashes rose Fandango Boursin.

Since then, we've been hard at work developing our debut series 'The Chronicles of Wild Hollow'. We launched with 'The Boursin Trilogy' in April 2021. Our second release, 'The Gray Trilogy' launched in May/June 2022. We are also in early development stages of three other projects that we're very excited about... More to come!

In August 2021 we were awarded 'Best Audio Drama' and 'Best Mixing' at the Indie PopCon Podcast Awards. In March 2022, we were shortlisted for The Society of Author's 'Imison Award', presented at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2022.

All audio is edited and produced in house by Christian Powlesland, who also composes the majority of the original music. Artwork and additional music by Harvey Badger.
