CIARAN MURTAGH AND ANDREW JONES

BAFTA- and BAA-winning writing double act Ciaran and Andrew spent 10 years performing live comedy across the UK (and Denmark, for some reason) with their company The Black Sheep, before discovering that writing for TV meant they could make even more people laugh and get to sleep in their own beds. Since winning last place on The Slammer, they have been in constant demand for their witty, cheeky, irreverent, rambunctious writing style, working across all ages and aspects of comedy. They are also increasingly called on as head writers and script editors.

In 2016, the duo won the Children’s BAFTA writing award as part of the Gumball writing team and, in 2018, they won the writer award at the British Animation Awards for an episode of Counterfeit Cat.
