James Sherwood
Award-winning stand-up and comedy writer


James is the 'Comedy songwriter-in-residence' at the Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell. We has written and recorded a song there every month since September 2013 - the latest was about Christmas songs. He writes and performs most of the jingles for Test Match Sofa, and often appears on the programme describing the carnage. And the rest of the time he writes comedy and music, and appears on the UK stand-up circuit.
