“Alison was instrumental in ensuring that my BBC Radio 4 series ‘Susan Calman is Convicted” was as successful as it was, winning a Writer’s Guild Award for it’s first series. She’s excellent in the areas of structure and tone, ensuring that shows which could be complex in their nature have an understandable narrative so that an audience can follow the journey of the show in the way I want them to. Her practical assistance is invaluable as is her personal contribution to the process of writing and performing. I can honestly say that she has made me more confident about my stand up and writing. She would be the first person I would call if I needed help with my shows, whether stand-up or broadcast. I can give no higher recommendation!” Susan Calman
When I was an Executive Producer in BBC Radio Comedy, I read literally hundreds of scripts and outlines from producers, writers and performers trying to get their ideas onto network radio. Developing scripts is one of the most enjoyable parts of production, whether it’s for narrative comedy or for an audience stand-up show
“Alison is just a delight to work with. Always positive, loyal and brilliantly inventive. Alison has always encouraged me to be the best version of me, which recently resulted in getting my first Radio 4 show.” Pippa Evans
Enquiries about working on the development of scripts for narrative and stand-up shows are welcome. Rates depend upon what’s required.
“She has a brilliant nose for how a script could work and where to push the humour. She also has the rare ability to give notes that inspire and open up the possibilities of a story which is invaluable especially in the early stages. I’d highly recommend her if you want to bring your script to the point where a broadcaster would be seriously interested in your work.” Kefi Chadwick, Comedy writer.
`’Alison found me in a tiny room at the Edinburgh Festival giving a stellar performance to some empty seats. She saw potential and encouraged me to pitch ideas for my own show on BBC Radio 4. Together we developed ‘Its A Fair Cop’ which is about to have its fourth series. She has been ‘hands on’ throughout the entire process from development, funding and pitching. Supporting the creative process, script development and editing, through to overseeing the recordings and final edits. With her vast production experience and natural creative flare she is a pleasure to work with in both recorded formats and directing live shows.” Alfie Moore
