Short Synopsis:

This audio documentary will be a presenter lead, focusing on the story of Angel Comedy, a “Free” Comedy club in Islington, London. The documentary will focus on the story of how Angel Comedy started and how it has expanded within the last two years. It will also focus on other areas of Angel Comedy such as Comedy Courses that are hosted at the venue and the community aspect of the club.


My audio project will documentary/feature style piece with multiple interviews throughout the programme. I am planning on using some informal language throughout the piece as I believe treating a comedy feature seriously would send the wrong tone. I will also use any jokes or funny sections from interviews to keep the overall piece light-hearted. In terms of audio, I plan on interviewing multiple people from Angel Comedy, primarily Barry Ferns as he is the director of the club and is one of the original co-owners. I also plan on speaking to some comedians that perform on any given night but will do this on location on an evening. I am planning on opening the documentary by cutting together clips from a live show at Angel to give a sense of what audience members might expect from a night at Angel. After that I am going to source audio clips from some of the bigger names in comedy that have performed at the club (Russell Howard, John Bishop, Eddie Izzard, etc) and montage these clips together. This will be used to give the listener refence points of more well-known comedians, keeping the listener engaged with the piece. After this I will go into the interviews with members of Angel focusing on the story of the club and then moving onto areas of the club that are more relevant today.
