Joel Morris and Jazon Hazeley are the prolific comedy writers behind a huge amount of modern comedy TV and a very heavily gifted set of modern-day Penguin books.

Their Rule of Three Podcast is an enormous resource for would-be comedy writers, since they manage to both dissect AND enjoy a wide variety of comic material in most formats. Strangely their relationship with stand-up is their Achilles Heel, but perhaps it would be intimidating if they didn’t have at least one.

Each episode someone from the world of comedy joins them and takes apart something funny from the point of view of why they really love it. For me the podcast has turned into a watch list (or rewatch list) as much as an education of how things can be done.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for inspiration.
