Writing sketches: things to consider while drafting

Sorry about the lack of posting action – not been getting much sleep! Or free time not used for writing sketched. However I have been thinking hard about writing sketches and trying to make them as good as I possibly can. I always have certain ideas/ways of working that I keep in my head but […]

Everything’s happening at once

So last week I moved house, marked a large pile of professional exam papers (new pile now arrived) and went to my first ever Newsjack meeting.

My Newsjack Series 7 Episode 3 submissions

Taking a short break from topical comedy

The News Revue are off to Edinburgh, Newjack isn’t back until the Autumn, Kirrin Island’s Summer Shorts are in the bag and the Treason Show crew are (I like to imagine anyway) sunning themselves on Brighton beach. So it’s a good time to get off the topical comedy donkey and try to spread my wings […]

4am cab podcast

In case you’d got the impression from the last few weeks that there was only one comedy podcast in existence… 🙂 here is another excellent comedy podcast, totally different from Live from Kirrin Island, 4am cab. In fact (other than being good and funny)  4am cab is about as different from Live from Kirrin Island as you can get […]
