Having worked in comedy for nearly 30 years now, Martin has lots of great acting and writing related insight and advice to share across the hour-long chat.
Press play to hear him talk about his experiences of appearing in shows such as PhoneShop and The Inbetweeners, and the work involved in writing sitcoms. The discussion around scripting material for panel shows is particularly interesting - don't miss that bit!
Towards the end of the video, Martin also talks about the process of transferring his BBC Radio Wales sitcom Bravo Two Charlies into a script suitable for a TV taster pilot - so stick around for that too.
