    Episode 39 - Comedy writer Joel Morris

    We were absolutely delighted to talk to brilliant comedy writer Joel Morris about his new book Be Funny Or Die - How Comedy Works and Why It Matters which is an excellent dissection of comedy, but also contains loads of great advice on writing in general.
    Joel is one of Britain’s busiest and most respected comedy writers, working on everything from Charlie Brooker’s Wipe shows to the hit Paddington films. Joel co-created the 5-million-plus selling Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups series and the cult humour hit The Framley Examiner and co-wrote the bestselling British travel guides Bollocks To Alton Towers Joel has won a BAFTA, Sony and Broadcast Awards for his writing, and put words in the mouths of everyone from Mitchell & Webb and Flight of The Conchords to Armstrong & Miller and Miranda Hart. Joel is the co-host and producer of Comfort Blanket, the top 10 arts podcast analysing how comforting films, tv, music and books achieve their magic, and the award-winning Rule of Three podcast about the craft of comedy writing (winner, best arts and culture podcast British Podcast Awards 2020).
