Who Writes This Crap?

Written and performed by Joel Stickley and Luke Wright, Who Writes This Crap? was a literary comedy show based on the book of the same name. It had a sell-out run at the prestigious Underbelly venue at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival before touring theatres and festivals across the UK.

Like the book, the live show of Who Writes This Crap? featured parodies and re-imaginings of everyday texts - small print, junk mail, adverts, health warnings etc. It also featured lectures on the art of bad writing and animations by award-winning film-maker Jon Dunleavy.

“A cathartic, sarcastic relief.” * * * * The List

“Effortless satire … humour for everyone.” * * * * ThreeWeeks

“This is intelligent writing that plays out like a live-action version of Naomi Klein’s ‘No-Logo’ filtered through the sensibilities of Chris Morris.” * * * *
