I’ve scripted drama, documentary, sketches and gags for numerous comedians and actors.

My radio dramas include HOFFNUNG DRAWN TO MUSIC with Matt Lucas & Gina McKee, HENRY’S GIRLS with Robert Glenister & Naoko Mori and ALL FINGERS AND THUMBS with Bill Nighy & Susannah Doyle.

I’ve researched and scripted radio documentaries for Jimmy Carr, Geoffrey Palmer, Barbara Windsor, Toby Jones, Bernard Cribbins, Lesley Garrett, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Tony Hawks and others.

I’ve written topical comedy for THE NEWS QUIZ, LOOSE ENDS, HEADCASES, BREMNER, BIRD & FORTUNE, PARSONS & NAYLOR’S PULL-OUT SECTIONS, THE 11 O’CLOCK SHOW, NEWS HUDDLINES and long-running stage show NEWSREVUE.

My sketches have featured in THE RUSS ABBOT SHOW, THE GRIFF RHYS JONES SHOW, THE RIGHT TIME and PUNT & DENNIS: IT’S BEEN A BAD WEEK.

I’ve written comedy news gags for both of the Two Ronnies.  I was a gag writer on Ronnie Corbett’s 80th birthday sketch show THE ONE RONNIE and, many years earlier, sold my first ever joke to THE TWO RONNIES, which was one of Ronnie Barker’s opening news items.

Other radio projects in development.  I am currently working on … the book!
