about face

Wordclown for hire. Filthy nightmare peddler. I founded and write for sinister sketch group CASUAL VIOLENCE, and produce the NOT NOW, BERNARD comedy nights in Islington.

I was nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality in 2011 and 2012, but have yet to be original enough to win. Casual Violence did win a ThreeWeeks Editor's Choice Award in 2011 though, so that's something.

I do comedy writing, copywriting, theatre & live comedy producing, short stories, arts marketing, script reading/editing, and occasional improv.
