Stand-up comic and award-nominated playwright Archie Maddocks loves stitching together routines about kebab shops and his "rough-arse" schooling, with pathos and evocative prose. We talk about writing for the comedy club and the stage, why he's the straight-man to his highly-strung family of actors, and how his play A Place For We has been put on hiatus by Covid-19. We also talk about how his show Matchstick concluded with a heartfelt examination of the Grenfell Tower fire, and why he feels that "we're not people that ever cry".
