How writers and performers can work together

Here's an hour-long podcast to download/stream featuring a discussion around the topic of how writers and performers can work together.

Comedy journalist Bruce Dessau hosted this panel at The Big Comedy Conference 2014, looking at the big increase in writer-performers, and how the two disciplines can collaborate.

Pete Sinclair, who has worked with Jack Dee for many years, particularly on hit series Lead Balloon, explained that process. Meanwhile Carrie Quinlan, who has written and acted in many shows in different genres, discusses how she works. Tiernan Douieb gives the view from the stand-up side of things.

Topics covered across the hour include how to collaborate with others; the mechanics of writing on panel shows; a look at how Twitter has changed gag writing; and much more. Have a listen...
