‘Comedy, Collaboration and Blur’: Talk and Q&A with John Osborne and Jane B...
Mon 14 November 2016, 19:30 – 20:30 GMT
Join us for an insightful discussion between comedy writer John Osborne and ex-BBC Head of Radio Comedy, Jane Berthoud. The two worked together closely from the start of John's radio career. John was scouted at Edinburgh Festival, and adapted his scripts for a highly successful radio comedy. In an intimate discussion, Jane and John will look at two distinctive perspectives of comedy, and discuss the relationship between writer and commissioning editor. They will also be talking about getting your script read, what editors look for in comedy, and how writing for radio differs from writing for print or television.
