COMEDY

I have written and performed stand-up comedy, sketch comedy, as well as performing, teaching, and leading performance groups for improvised comedy. I have written comedy for others for TV, radio, theatre, print and web.

My most recent comedy project is Hancock’s Half House, an original audio sit-com podcast series co-created, co-written and jointly performed for Inshore Madman Productions. It is available on all major podcast platforms. Details here

I was a stand-up comedian for many years (Cheeky and subversive”; “Best Late-Night Show” (The List) “Blistering comedy.” (BBC London Radio), as well a sketch comedian - I created and directed The Comedy Brothel - and improvisor. I presented the TV show Stand-Up Live.

My comedy-writing career began with a BBC commission to write for BBC Radio 4's Weekending. After that I wrote sketches and jokes for many people, including Rory Bremner, Alistair McGowan, and Armando Ianucci. I co-wrote the revue On The Toilet with Shergar and its follow-up (“A sweetie-bag of...keenly observed stand-up and songs...good skits… and linguistically intricate and sharp satirical songs” (The Scotsman); “Recommended” (BBC Radio One); and wrote and co-performed the two-hander play Death of a Comedian (“A brilliant satire (Edinburgh Evening News: )).
