Description

'full of humour, sharp, and rarely gratuitous' Paul Levy, FringeReview

'often moving and frequently hilarious' Andrew Kay, Latest 7

As a writer, I've been involved in a variety of projects, including writing serious theatre shows (Oedipus, 2009), comedy (A Fistful of Snow, 2009) and musicals (Something's Got the Elephant, 2011), as well as sketches for stage and radio. I have also written a number of TV and film concepts for companies such as DB Productions and RDPR.  Most of my writing can be found on my main blog, Chris Hislop's Musings, while my comedy work is on my comedy blog, Chris Hislop's Comic Timing.

I am always interested in hearing about new projects: please phone or email (all info in the About section) to discuss any new ideas!
