EP120: The Quanderhorn Xperimentations with Rob Grant and Andrew Marshall
Mr. Stay spoke to a pair of his TV writing heroes at the MCM Comic Con in London recently. Rob Grant is the co-creator of the classic science fiction comedy Red Dwarf, and Andrew Marshall is best-known for the BBC comedy Two Point Four Children. Together they have created a fantastic BBC radio comedy series and accompanying novel The Quanderhorn Xperimentations. They talked about its creation, how they work together and with the cast, and we also get a mini-comedy writing masterclass and an exclusive excerpt from the audiobook (with thanks to Orion Audio).
In this episode you will discover…
- Tips on writing with a partner and why visualisation is so important
- Why it can be important to have your concept clear before you write
- How situation, character and comedy come together for the perfect sitcom
- And why writing is like looking for a perfect table
The Quanderhorn Xperimentaitons will start on BBC Radio Show 4 on Monday 25th June at 11:30 am, or you can listen via the BBC iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b8cx2z
