In his 60 years on this planet, comedy writer and performer Andy Hamilton has experienced many changes. For instance, he was once a 6’4”-tall professional basketball player, until a tree fell on him. But, of course, change is an inescapable part of the human condition. Why? Is that fair? Some changes are good, some bad. Why can’t they be more clearly labelled? How did we end up working longer hours? Where did all the sparrows go? If you’re feeling flustered because of flux, Andy will teach you how to cope with the changes we have seen and the changes yet to come. Contains mild peril.
During the past few years Andy and his writing partner Guy Jenkin have co-created, written and directed the 2016 political comedies ‘Power Monkeys’ for Channel 4; the hit BBC 1 sitcom ‘Outnumbered’ and the acclaimed 2014 UK feature film ‘What We Did on Our Holiday’ Their impressive back catalogue includes Channel 4’s ‘Drop The Dead Donkey’.
