Overview of Projects and Work at Comedy Central
Not for TV
As part of Comedy Central’s Not For TV digital platform, I commissioned and helped develop the following series. Most series sit on our website however cut downs, supercuts, memes and gifs are posted to social media as additional/marketing content:

Development Work and Screenwriting
Over my two years at Comedy Central, I’ve developed scripts for sketches, series, podcasts and branded content. Specifically, in 2017, I wrote a 6 part web series for Comedy Central International that was granted development funding by Claire McArdle (VP Multi-Platform, Comedy Central International). Show bible and scripts will be provided upon request.
Short Form Video Content
In addition to overseeing Not for TV, I also produce stand alone videos for the website, here is a collection of a few note worthy videos:

Website and Social Media Content
Part of my job has also been to create supercuts and playlists of Comedy Central shows (a select few have been listed below, and many of the supercuts are posted natively to Facebook):
Articles and Illustration Work
In addition to producing and commissioning video content, I also write and illustrate articles for the website which range from satire and parody to show news, quizzes and narrative pieces from other comedians. Below are a few examples:
