19th October:

In Conversation with Writer Jake Laverde 

Ltes let Jake introduce himself....
"I started off as a freelance journalist writing about video games, film and TV and live comedy with my work appearing in Vice, Shortlist and Den of Geek. While at uni doing a degree in TV production, I was part of the writing team for a multicam sitcom pilot that went on to win best comedy and entertainment production at the RTS London Student TV awards.
Since then I’ve worked with established comics like Jay Foreman, Samantha Baines and Edinburgh award winner Jordan Brookes on various projects. And I’ve worked with a producer at Fudge Park, the production company founded by the creators of The Inbetweeners, developing an idea to a completed treatment and episode outline.
I joined the NFTS comedy diploma in 2020 led by Bill Dare, a very experienced producer behind many formats including Dead Ringers which runs to this day, which was a huge turbo boost for my writing. And I’m currently on the Falmouth University remote MA comedy writing course led by Simon Nicholls, a producer who has worked with Armando Iannucci a lot.
