David Reed

Alex chats to writer performer David Reed (BBC Radio 4’s ‘The Penny Dreadfuls’, BBC’s ‘It’s Kevin’) about dispensable characters, the playfulness of sketch and the joy of watching serious actors be idiots.


David also creates a character on the spot based solely on the made-up name given to him by the show’s previous guest in ‘Chain(ge) of Character’. This episode was recorded 13th June 2020.
