ALAN STAFFORD – COMEDY WRITER
I’ve scripted drama, documentary, sketches and gags for numerous comedians and actors.
My radio dramas include HOFFNUNG
DRAWN TO MUSIC with Matt Lucas & Gina McKee, HENRY’S GIRLS with
Robert Glenister & Naoko Mori and ALL FINGERS AND THUMBS with Bill
Nighy & Susannah Doyle.
I’ve researched and scripted radio
documentaries for Jimmy Carr, Geoffrey Palmer, Barbara Windsor, Toby
Jones, Bernard Cribbins, Lesley Garrett, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Tony Hawks
I’ve written topical comedy for THE
NEWS QUIZ, LOOSE ENDS, HEADCASES, BREMNER, BIRD & FORTUNE, PARSONS
& NAYLOR’S PULL-OUT SECTIONS, THE 11 O’CLOCK SHOW, NEWS HUDDLINES
and long-running stage show NEWSREVUE.
My sketches have featured in THE
RUSS ABBOT SHOW, THE GRIFF RHYS JONES SHOW, THE RIGHT TIME and PUNT
& DENNIS: IT’S BEEN A BAD WEEK.
I’ve written comedy news gags for
both of the Two Ronnies. I was a gag writer on Ronnie Corbett’s
80th birthday sketch show THE ONE RONNIE and, many years earlier, sold
my first ever joke to THE TWO RONNIES, which was one of Ronnie Barker’s
opening news items.
Other radio projects in development. I am currently working on … the book!
