Writing Comedy

Writing Comedy


We are delighted to welcome Ashley Blaker, the UK’s only Orthodox Jewish comedian, to launch this year’s Festival. Described as ‘a Haredi Michael McIntyre’, he will shortly be touring Israel and then performing an all-new UK tour in 2017. His first stand-up tour – _Ungefiltered _–played to sell-out audiences the length and breadth of the UK and was seen by 5,500 people. Ashley is also a comedy writer and producer for radio and television. Ashley will be speaking about the process of writing for comedy, the skills required and challenges faced.

To book to see his one man show _ Meshuga Frum  _at the Carriageworks Theatre at 19:30 on 1  March go to []
