As a contributor I specialise in British Comedy. I also hope to raise the profile of writers throughout the entertainment pages so that scriptwriters get their due.
In horrific tribute to comedy writers everywhere, I wrote this and got threatened with legal action for it (which was much more fun than hitting the keyboard was)
