Fantastic Noise

Comedy (with Julia McKenzie, Head of Radio Comedy at BBC Studios)

October 8, 2019

Radio and audio comedy is tough to make. When Terry was on the radio, he would refer to himself as the joke killer - comic line delivery was never his strength... So how do you make good radio comedy? In this episode we're talking with Head of Radio Comedy at BBC Studios, Julia McKenzie. We discuss some dos and don'ts, current trends, and the importance of originality. Terry is joined in the studio by Media Production student Nathan Edwin.

Fantastic Noise is a podcast about making radio. Recorded in the Radio LaB 97.1FM studios at the University of Bedfordshire. Produced and presented by Terry Lee.
