I worked in the writers' room for the BBC Radio 4 topical comedy shows, Newsjack and News Quiz. For Newsjack I was a commissioned writer and script editor. 

Newsjack airs on Thursdays at 10:30 on Radio 4 and News Quiz is on Fridays at 12:30. You can download them as podcasts here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/fricomedy

You can listen to one of the sketches I wrote with my friend, Mr Ben Harris, here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01vy2lq or below:
