WRITER

girl-friday-typewriter

‘I just said I’d write it. I didn’t say I wouldn’t tear it up.’

I’m a writer of jokes, scripts,articles, sketches, spoof news, parody songs, online quizzes, the funny words on pictures and more.

Because I’m interested in all kinds of things, I like to write about all kinds of things – but I specialise in comedy. My credits cover online, radio, TV, live shows and podcasts, and include BBC Radio’s The News Quiz, Newsjack, NewsRevue, and shows without ‘News’ in the title, such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The Treason Show.

I was the lead writer on the comedy politics podcast Strong & Stable – which made both The Guardian and The Independent‘s lists of The Best Podcasts Of 2017.

I’m part of the creative team at the social media agency That Lot – writing jokes and creating all sorts of original online content for social media accounts from Have I Got News For You to IHG Hotels.

I have written my positive psychology and lifestyle articles for Standard Issue; I’ve also written for BBC Radio 4AOLBT.comMSNUKTV and other websites.

Before going freelance in 2015, I was Comedy Editor of The Huffington Post UK for three years: writing, script-editing, commissioning and curating funny, engaging content from spoof news stories to viral videos, listicles to features.

I was part of the script development team for Creative England & BFI’s iShorts+ Funny Girls, I’ve written scripts for digital agency Live Creative, and I’m currently writing a feature screenplay.

If you’d like me to write something, please get in touch! For scriptwriting, I’m represented by Christina Pickworth at Imagine Talent.
