Overview

I am an award-winning scriptwriter and comedy writer currently writing for film, TV, radio, stage, animation and the Internet and also for commercial companies.

Service Description

I carry out all types of film, television, radio and theatre script writing, consultation, adaptation and 'doctoring' and I have numerous credits and commissions. With a sound knowledge of script writing theory I can write you a script that works on all levels or help rejuvenate your own ailing script. I also carry out individual and group script tutoring

As a comedy writer I have written just about everything: one-liners and sketches for top companies and broadcasters, my own commissioned TV show, comedy songs, live shows and films as well as books. I can write in any style: slapstick, family, gross-out or satirical and I can help polish your writing without altering your own style or affecting your ambitions. I write material for all levels of comedian; beginners or professionals, male or female.

My award winning commercial work is equally well received and ranges from product copywriting, to radio and TV commercials and audio guides, notably for London's Dockland Light Railway. I am a distinctive, commissioned, blog writer with a humorous approach if required.
