"This is black humor at its blackest and best. It shoots a taproot down to our deepest humanity, and it does so, ironically enough, by revealing the hellish sources of our own inhumanity."

born 1963 Glasgow, Scotland

“A comedy writer can only be a good comedy writer if they write what makes them laugh, not what makes other people laugh. That’s how they grow and strengthen their distinctive voice. I want to be surprised when I read someone’s script, not sit ticking off all the things I expected from it.”
