I am a thorough, resourceful researcher with experience in studio, chat show, topical comedy and comedy-entertainment environments, and on scripted comedy shorts. Over the past two years my main roles have been on Dave Gorman's studio-shot comedy show Modern Life is Goodish, on Frank Skinner's iPlayer chat show Frank Skinner on Demand, and on the BBC Two live studio show Too Much TV. In these roles I've performed a broad range of tasks, including generating ideas, assisting at shoots (studio and VTs), booking guests, writing blogs and briefings, sourcing archive, making props, looking after talent and completing post-production paperwork. I have also worked with comedians on live events, including producing Tony Law on Ice - an innovative comedy play on ice, featuring a cast of 13 alternative comics. This is demonstrative of my fearless approach - I will get stuck into any activity, regardless how complex or ridiculous it sounds. I previously worked as a broadsheet journalist for nine years, showing strong attention to detail and writing skills.

To reinforce my broadcasting skills, I've recently completed a Diploma in Writing and Producing Comedy at the National Film and Television School, where I was awarded the grade "Very Good" and was mentored by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris (who write the Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups and regularly collaborate with Charlie Brooker).

While many of my credits are comedy-focused, much of my workload has also involved writing factual briefings and finding news stories on diverse topics, so I would also be strongly suited to working in a factual or entertainment setting.

I'm currently available, so please get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss. Thank you. Read Less
