Theatre and comedy writing

Reviews as a theatre critic (1998-1999)

During my time at the Camden New Journal, I started to review plays on the London Fringe circuit and then volunteered to write reviews for the London Newspaper Group.

In 2011, I wrote an hour long play which I am revising into a TV script. Here is the first scene. If you would like to see the finished play please contact me. It is a romantic comedy about a couple who meet in London in their 40s, after both being single for over a decade before meeting.

My interest in theatre led me to interview RADA for the Arberry Profile about their student attraction policy.

Unfunny Comedian sketch
Acting in Unfunny Comedian sketch for Skinny Wrist Productions

As a stand-up comedian (for fun) I was asked to play an Unfunny Comedian in this comedy sketch for Kevin Durham’s Skinny Wrist productions.

For Objective Productions, I acted as a person going for faith healing in Derren Brown’s Miracles for Sale, shown on Channel 4 on 25 April 2011, then repeated on Channel 4 at 10.50pm on 6 April 2013 and again in September 2013.

I wrote three comedy sketches for The Effing and Blinding Cabaret, which have been performed at various festivals from Edinburgh Fringe to Zagreb, at a fundraiser at the Hilton Hotel near Baker Street and at Dans Le Noir restaurant in London.

I organised the live music for the Crouch End and Muswell Hill Street festivals from 1997-2000. Due to the volume of press, I haven’t uploaded it all yet. Watch this space.

I participated in a theatrical shopping experience, which was launched in Falmouth by John Frankland in December 2011 and will be repeated this summer. I contributed three sketches which were performed in venues around Falmouth from 16-19 December 2012.
