Andy
Wolton

Comedy writer for radio and television

Andy started writing comedy in 2010 because he was rubbish at jobs.

His first script won a national BBC sitcom competition and was read at an Edinburgh Festival showcase. In 2011 he was then awarded the prestigious BBC Radio writer's bursary.

He has gone on to work on dozens of radio and TV shows.

In 2017 he was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist, a list of new emerging talent tipped as future stars.

He is best known for writing comedy Trying, Apple's first ever British scripted original, and one of The Independent's top 20 shows of 2020. Series 2 is currently streaming from Apple TV, starring Rafe Spall, Esther Smith and Imelda Staunton.
