Funny Matters

All about Angela

Angela Brightwell

My name’s Angela and I’m a Brighton-based writer, scriptwriter, Huff Post UK blogger, copywriter & digital engagement specialist…. and that’s just for starters.

My final submission for my MA Scriptwriting course gained a first class award and was optioned as a TV comedy-drama pilot by The Comedy Unit, RDF Media.

In 2013 my sitcom Open Wide was shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Writing Award.

I am the creator of the award-nominated blog, Funny Matters – where I explore my belief that there’s not a situation in life where humour isn’t essential for survival.

In 2015 I adapted some of my Funny Matters posts to become a one woman stage show called My Mum The Chemo Ninja which I performed as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival and was short-listed for a Brighton Fringe Award.

I am currently working on a non-fiction book about grief, humour and reflections on losing my mum to terminal cancer in 2012.

I’m also co-writing two original comedy scripts in development with TV production company, Channel X

I love to work with & help other people in a range of different ways. I offer online digital engagement coaching, as well as help for those who want to share their stories – be it commercially or personally.

If you’d like to work with me – or have an idea you’d like to see if I can help with – give me a shout.
