goldenanorak is a London-based group of comedy writers, formed in 2007, who produce audio sketches, spoof news items and miscellaneous other treats. They are proud to present some of the fruits of their labour here, and hope you will enjoy them enough to subscribe to our webfeed and download our [future] podcasts. Golden Anorak will also be represented at the 2009 Edinburgh Festival, where some of the group will be delighting audiences with a fine blend of stand-up and sketches.

Christopher Hogg. Though normally on time, Christopher came late to comedy. Foolishly he spent his time becoming an expert in online advertising. Pop-ups and banners and all forms of annoying online advertising are his fault.

Pippa Palmer. A marketing professional with a love of copywriting, Pippa started writing comedy for pleasure in 2007.

Sal Thomas - When Bob Monkhouse died in 2003, Sal decided that someone had to continue his charmingly naff comedy lineage. Some 5 years later, having watched every episode of Celebrity Squares exactly 47 times each, she started her journey. People laughed when she said she was going to be a comedy writer. They’re not laughing now. Thank you Bob...
