SCRIPTWRITING: Sitcom, Comedy Drama, Sketch Comedy

Chris is a Director of, with his courses, books and podcasts offered to amateur and professional comics across the world.  Here's a sample below:

I can help you develop your sitcom/ comedy drama concept, script and pitch. Writers I have worked with on their scripts have had a TV comedy drama commissioned by Australian channel Stan, a comedy drama script commissioned by Channel 4 (which I then script-edited), a sitcom pilot broadcast on BBC Radio 4 (that I also script-edited) and have been amongst the winners and shortlisted writers in the BAFTA Rocliffe comedy writing competition.

Other clients have had comedy plays at the Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre (that I script-edited and directed), have won Sitcom Mission and have had a commissioned sitcom on Channel 5. I also ran the Yellow Door script competition with BCG where the winners are having scripts developed by Lucy Lumsden and myself, to pitch to channels. I can also work with you on your sketch comedy writing.

I work with individuals, writing duos or groups.


I can consult on and give input into your live show scripts. From one-off consultations to an ongoing process. Shows are typically working towards festivals or touring.
