Steve Dawson (Part 1)

In the first of this two-parter, Alex chats to writer and comedy highlord Steve Dawson (BBC’s ‘Walliams and Friends’, ITV’s ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’) about the Dawson Bros, breaking down character traits and trying to write funny during a global crisis.

In second of this two-parter, Alex chats to Steve about writing for children, creating idiocy for ‘Ant and Dec’ and making ‘The Peter Serafinowicz Show’.
