Comedy Scripts

Comedy Tweets to Sitcom

Here’s a selection of my comedy writing.

I write everything from one-liners to short jokes, tweets, blog posts, tv comedy sketches, theatre (a lot of physical and visual stuff), sitcoms, short films and online characters.

This was a winner at the Channel 4 Secret Policeman’s Ball for Amnesty International. You had to pitch an idea for a sketch in 140 characters or less. Alas none of the pitches made it to the stage.

TWEET

Celebrity water-boarding with Jonathan Ross starts well with David Cameron & a glass of water but ends badly with Sarah Palin gargling the Star-Spangled Banner.
