I'll try not to make this an online CV...

I’m Marc and I’ve been writing for over 20 years for TV, stage and radio, and have worked with some of the top names in British comedy.

My work includes sketches for Horrible Histories, sitcom episodes for BBC’s 4 O’Clock Club and penning the Brexit Cookbook: British food for British People. I also run a speech writing business, All Write On The Night.
