[TV] Writing for Facelift

While reading this transcript of the Don Brash / Simon Dallow interview on Agenda, I figured out how to write for Facelift. Just spend those 7 weeks up at Mum & Dad’s watching as much TV as possible, with a notepad beside me … bouncing ideas off what’s actually happening.

That interview is basically a comedy sketch in and of itself.

Reminds me of what John Clarke said about satire, that it’s just hitting the ball back to the politicians with a bit of spin. No wonder I was having trouble. It’s very tough to write comedy in a vacuum.
