Joe Tucker and Lloyd Woolf (who was on Skype) are the co-writers and co-creators of Big Bad World on Comedy Central.
Big Bad World is about what happens when you wait for life to begin. Ben (Blake Harrison) has just graduated and the world should be his oyster, but he quickly finds himself back in his hometown and nursing his as-yet unformulated dreams.
He’s also back to hanging out with the same old gang; too-smart-for-her-own-good charity mugger Beth, guitar-obsessive bedsit-philosopher Eggman and University-refuser and unashamed year-round-wearer-of-shorts-and-flip-flops Oakley. If it wasn’t for the frequent overdraft charges, and the renewed proximity of parents Jan and Neil, Ben might almost believe the last three years of his life never happened.
The stellar cast of British comedy heroes also includes CAROLINE QUENTIN (Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly) and JAMES FLEET (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Vicar of Dibley), along with the fastest-rising talent in comedy, including SEANN WALSH (Argumental, Stand Up for the Week), REBECCA HUMPHRIES (Come Fly With Me), DAVID FYNN (Game of Thrones, Pete Versus Life) and SCARLETT ALICE JOHNSON (Pramface).
Big Bad World is on Wednesdays at 9pm, Comedy Central.
