Should I write a pilot episode for a SITCOM??

This has been boiling over in my mind lately. I have been overcome with so much creative energy as of late and currently I have a never ending desire to write and create.

So basically, I had this idea. A sitcom, based on a group of 5 friends. I have this idea for a pilot episode, that involves the main character walking in on his best friend having sex with his mom. To his shock, he starts to lose his sanity, and later discovers that his friend contracted chlamydia from his mother. He brings his troubles to his friends, who are all obsessed with getting high off of elmer's glue, so they help little. They are kinda like static characters.
Well anyway, as he pieces together the clues as to what exactly happened, he uncovers the missing link that could potentially help him discover the identity of his father (It is unknown who he is, considering his mother has slept with countless men and women)

I plan on finishing the pilot episode within the next few weeks, and when the time is right, submit my final product to comedy central. I know it's a long shot, but I'm willing to try. The question is: Should I go through with this idea??

1: You spelled chlamydia wrong.

2: Kinda a generic sitcom. Not a terrible premise, but it takes far more ability at writing jokes and plots than you'd expect.

You should probably learn how to write properly first.

Comma, commas everywhere.

Y'know, what do you have to lose? Nothing apart time.
And time spent being creative is not time wasted, even if it fails critically.

And if you aren't dedicated enough to music, stick to an actual career that you can make money in.

If you want to be creative, its best that you find whatever you like best and become best at that specific role. Some people like Jacob Bannon manage to be good at multiple art forms, but thats because they're freaks of nature.

And they put the time in.

Yeah, his mom is a total *****. I had this idea for one episode, where she meets this 22 year old in a bar, *****s it up, and then goes back to his house and they ****. Then later they have a DNA test and it turns out he is her SON that she put up for adoption back when she was in her teens
