Nathaniel Tapley

Chair of the Comedy Committee

“I’ve written a broad range of comedy, from standup and satirical songs to broadcast sitcoms. I’ve worked in every medium from stage to radio to television to a long litany of probably-best-forgotten web series.

“I started on stage with News Revue, The Treason Show and writing and performing standup. After winning BBC Radio 2’s Sounds competition in 2006, I started writing for radio, and wrote for The News Quiz, The Vote Now Show and others. I worked on seven seasons of Have I Got News For You, and had a sitcom, Class, broadcast on CBBC. In between all of this I wrote webseries for pretty much every producer of comedy web series, Comedybox, Channelflip, Finite Funnies & Wildseed. I currently write Tonight With Vladimir Putin¬†for BBC2.”
