About James Cary

You’ll get a sense of James Cary from his weekly newsletter, Don’t Mention It, here.

James Cary is an unusual mix. He is a writer of situation comedy for BBC TV (eg. Miranda, Bluestone 42) and Radio (Think the Unthinkable, Hut 33) and blogs about the technicalities of the process here. He has also produced a video course called Writing Your Sitcom, whichavailable here. In case you’re wondering, his favourite sitcoms of all time are Yes, Prime Minister and Seinfeld. You can find out more about James Cary’s comedy writing for TV and Radio via his agent’s website here.

James Cary is also a Christian, with tendencies towards Calvinism (see? I warned you he was odd). He is also a member of the House of Laity of the General Synod for the Church of England for the Diocese of Bath & Wells, and a Lay Representative of Synod on The Archbishops’ Council. He has a degree in Theology from the University of Durham, preaches at his church from time to time and has no plans to become a vicar. For over a decade, he wrote a column for the now defunct Third Way magazine.

James is especially interested in the interaction between church, faith, culture and politics. His heroes include GK Chesterton, CS Lewis, William Wilberforce, PG Wodehouse, PJ O’Rourke and David Gower.
