I direct full shows and offer an outside eye on shows in development

For full show direction I tend to be involved from an early stage (finding the material in the first place, helping structure/filter it) but have also come in at later stages.

Please do get in touch if you’d like to chat about yours – always happy to have a coffee or Zoom and think about your ideas and see if there might be a fit (no charge for that chat to be clear).

Currently, as well as hour long comedy shows I’d be very interested to chat about touring shows and directing shows in other areas.

My full CV is attached but recently I’ve directed shows that won the Main Prize at Leicester Comedy Festival (2023) and were nominated for it and that won the Best Newcomer Prize at the Edinburgh Fringe (2022) .. and brilliant other shows that I loved at least as much which weren’t chosen for shiny things.
