Adam writes with Jonathan Parkyn. They are currently writing two scripts for new series Frack Off (Shire Oak Films) and an episode outline for animated series Floogals for Sprout/Belly Up. Together, they completed episodes for series 2 and 3 of Hank Zipzer for Kindle/CBBC and having written episodes for series 2-4 of So Awkward for Channel X/CBBC they are now writing two episodes for series 5. All this as well as a bumper crop of original comedy projects of their own. These include sitcoms Spoilers (an episode for Hat Trick/ITV2) and Babyface (script commissioned by Tiger Aspect). They are also developing horror comedy feature idea, Beast 17.
In 2012 they wrote two episodes of their own supernatural sitcom, Deadbeats for BBC3, and a pilot was filmed. Further notable joint credits include another BBC3 pilot, The Accidental Shaman, and Bryan’s Daughter (optioned to Tidy), along with a smattering of sketches for BBC3’s CGI-based sketch show The Wrong Door.
Adam and Jonathan like to keep themselves amused by finding ways to mis-use Photoshop, the results of which can be found at www.littlebitwrong.com.
Previously, Adam was co-founder of the sketch group Electric Eel, with Dan Clark and Cliff Kelly, who wrote and performed material together for six years, including five successful shows at the Edinburgh Festival. Adam also co-wrote two series of The Estate Agents for Channel 4, as well as Roy Dance is Dead for the channel’s Comedy Lab strand. He has also contributed sketches to BBC 2’s Comedy Nation and wrote the mini-sitcom, Stop the World for BBC Choice. His radio credits include The Electric Hotel, a pilot for Radio 4.
Adam is currently working on a short film script, Invisible, and an animation project, Jake’s Dad. He is also an actor, with credits that include The Inbetweeners, The IT Crowd and How Not To Live Your Life (Adam is not to be confused with the Irish actor Adam Goodwin, who is obviously very talented but doesn’t have the extra ‘G’).
