“The Golden Age of Incompetence”: Ian Dunt meets TV comedy writer Jason Hazeley

“We’ve been kettled with our own thoughts.” Comedy writer and friend of the podcast JASON HAZELEY – Screenwipe writer and co-creator of everything from the grown-up Ladybird books to Philomena Cunk – talks to Ian Dunt about what the pandemic has done to TV, the live sitcom that is Great Britain, and the dismal poverty of Boris Johnson’s terrible, feeble jokes. 


  • “Have I Got News For You in lockdown just looks like a series of hostage videos.”
  • “The last thing the world needs right now is a golden age of monologue.”
  • “Boris Johnson is an ambassador of the trivial and inconsequential… but your Prime Minister should not be a figure of fun.”


Presented by Ian Dunt. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producer Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production.
