James Sherwood has become one of the country’s foremost comedy writers and continues to rapidly ascend the stand-up circuit, following becoming the runner-up in the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2004. Having received the BBC Radio Entertainment writers’ bursary in 2008, James contributes the funnies to radio shows across the BBC, including The Now Show, The News Quiz and BBC7’s new topical comedy sketch show, Tilt.
He regularly reviews the newspapers on Sky News, writes a blog on the Guardian website and spends most Sundays singing in a church choir, despite not actually being religious.
