I produce comedy and comedy entertainment shows for broadcast TV. I have produced single-camera sitcom, studio shows, live sketches and pre-recorded sketches.
My background as a performer gives me a good perspective on the needs and concerns of performers as well as a decent eye for what’s going to get a laugh.
I also write scripts (commission for a non-broadcast pilot for E4) so am able to script-edit, and have a good grasp of storytelling.
