Joe Wells Doesn't Want To Do Political Comedy Anymore!

Joe has been a support act for Frankie Boyle and Alexie Sayle and has written for Have I Got News For You, so if anyone can write funny stuff about politics it should be him. But he can’t! Boris is too awful, Trump is too ridiculous, and if he has to write one more joke about Brexit then he’s going to scream. Joe’s starting to wonder why he chose to be a satirist in the first place.

 

But the exploration of why he loved the angry outsider status of being a political comedian isn’t straightforward. It brings with it some reflections on the labels we give to one another and some revelations about himself. Focusing his fresh and biting humour on the state of the world in 2020, watch Joe as he works towards a better understanding of his political anger and his own brain.

As seen on BBC3's Quickies and on BBC2's Ouch Storytelling Live.
