Writing for TV: Comedy
Joel Morris is one of Britain’s busiest comedy writers. Alongside his writing partner Jason Hazeley, he has worked with Charlie Brooker, Mitchell & Webb, and just about everybody else, winning a BAFTA for the howl of pain that was 2016 Wipe and a Broadcast Award for A Touch of Cloth.
He writes TV dimwit Philomena Cunk, worked on the Paddington films, and created the best-selling Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups series, as well as brooding Scandinavian detective Knut Angstrom for Radio 4, and the current affairs punditry satire Agendum. The pair were behind the spoof local newspaper The Framley Examiner, co-wrote the travel guides Bollocks To Alton Towers, and crafted artisan knob jokes for Viz comic for many years.
Joel divides his time between London and the pub.
