AKA
Alex Wright
Nationality
Scottish
Home town
Glasgow
Resident of
Scotland (Cunningsburgh)

Alex Garrick-Wright and his writing partner Rebecca Bain have been lead writers on BBC Scotland's Breaking the News, and had their work broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack, News Quiz, Now Show, DMs Are Open, and Noising Up, as well as The Treason Show, News Revue and Sketch Please! They have won the BCG's Making A Scene Of It competition in 2021 and the David Nobbs Memorial Trust Award in 2023. Alex is based in Shetland and Rebecca is based in Edinburgh, so they were sick of writing via Zoom before it was fashionable.

As well as writing, Alex and Rebecca perform and produce their own sketches under the name Bonnie & Clydeside. Alex is also a founding member of Shetland Comedy, which organises, produces and promotes comedy in the Scottish isles, and is a member of the Imposters improv troupe.

Alex Garrick-Wright's comedic timing is thoroughly impressive which could fool one into believing there was a script all along. He also brings a wonderful sense of structure to the comedic madness crafted by skilled character performances by Marjolein Robertson.

The Shetland Times (Jessie Syme), Friday 20th March 2020

Garrick-Wright, meanwhile, was impressive as the villain, using dramatic force to play up to the role with comic exuberance.

Shetland News (Chris Cope), Saturday 20th January 2018

Jones and Garrick-Wright sitting down as two humdrum men looking at holiday slides - which were acted out freeze-frame by the other three - was perhaps the night's highlight.
