More exciting news – Live From Kirrin Island Ep 2 is up

And just in case all that Newsjack action wasn’t enough excitement for one week (not to mention moving house, marking exams, sleep etc…) Live From Kirrin Island Episode 2 has gone um… live. Get it here! Apart from all the brilliant funny stuff, you get to hear me being a Dick. I realize this isn’t anything unusual for people who know me […]

Getting two sketches into Newsjack Series 7 Episode 4

So that credit was not one but two sketches on Newsjack. Mine were the “coping without electricity” sketch (where I was very pleased that the tortoise line got a good laugh) and the “cloning jokes” sketch. Even more exciting, I have been invited into the writer’s room next Tuesday. Which also a bit scary as […]

I’ve got something on Newsjack Series 7 Episode 4

Although I don’t know what. I got the famous Newsjack “something in” email. And I’m on the list http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00kvs8r/features/episode-four But they never tell you what in advance. I’ll just have to listen to the show. (Not because they enjoy us being in suspense but just because of the practical difficulty of telling everyone before the show.) […]

My Newsjack Series 7 Episode 3 submissions

Rather tired with recording Live from Kirrin Island on Saturday and also trying to get everything sorted for moving house (excuses, excuses!) so only managed to send two rushed sketches and four one liners to Newsjack this week. My sketches were on Ed Milliband trying to get on a TV comedy show like Letterman A […]

Newsjack Series 7 Episode 2 – sketches sent

I’ve sent three sketches to Newsjack again (didn’t manage to write six like I always intend, and rarely do). (Submission guidelines are here in case you haven’t seen them yet – still time for one liners this week.) This week’s sketches were on Andrew Mitchell insulting the police (like everyone I would guess?) Waitrose’s twitter problems […]

That Putin sketch is now Newsjack’s preview clip on their front page

My Putin sketch (very ably rewritten by the excellent Tom Neenan) is the preview clip for Newsjack. You can hear it here. And of course the rest of the show at 10.30 tonight on BBC Radio 4 extra.

Newsjack Series 7 Episode 1 – recording and getting stuff in

Great fun at the recording tonight. I’ve never been to a Newsjack before and the cast are really very good at performing the stuff live and I had a great time. Which was probably helped by getting a couple of bits in. My Vladimir Putin sketch was in, with a LOT of editing. The edits […]
