Will Cooper is a BAFTA-winning comedy writer, specialising in topical one-liners, sketches and children's tv. He has worked on CBBC shows such as The Dog Ate my Homework and Diddy TV.

His comedy scriptwriting is done in partnership with Owen Cooper. In 2015 they won Scottish BAFTA for their work on The Dog Ate my Homework. They were also one of the winners of the BBC sitcom competition 'Funny on Three' and were commissioned to work with a producer to write a full sitcom pilot.

Since then they've gone on to write for comedians and have had jokes on over 30 episodes of Mock the Week. They've also written for radio shows such as Breaking the News, Dave Gorman's Pub Olympics, the Show What You Wrote and Tom Deacon's Road Trip.

Will wrote a sci-fi play that was performed as part of The Twilight Hour, an anthology of plays taking influence from the Twilight Zone. It was performed to sold-out crowds at the Etcetera and Canal Cafe theatres
