Award-winning BBC sitcom writer James Cary is heading to Shrewsbury for a unique evening taking place at St George’s Church in Frankwell on Thursday 14 March at
During the evening James will deliver some of his own comedy routines and explore the sometimes dangerous avenues of comedy (e.g. why jokes might be offensive) and the complicated relationship between comedy and faith.
In a time when the wrong joke can you get fired or killed, James’ contribution to the understanding of humour, offence, comedy and faith has much to offer us. It will be a thought-provoking and laugh-inducing evening.
James is a Christian and a member of the Church of England’s General Synod for Bath & Wells Diocese (the “funniest diocese in England” thanks to Blackadder).
He helped write the Miranda series. His sitcom Bluestone 42 (co-written with Richard Hurst) ran for three series on BBC3, bringing comedy out of a bomb disposal unit in Afghanistan.
