OB lecture: Joseph Elliott

Wednesday 13 January, 6.30pm


Event date: Wednesday 13 January, 6.30pm
Event location: Online

Join the Old Bristolians for their brand new OB Lecture Series where we are hearing from a variety of Old Bristolians' as they discuss their career and life since BGS. 

The latest speaker, and the first for 2021, is author Joseph Elliott. 

Joe attended BGS from 1995-2002 before going on to study English Literature and Drama at the University of Manchester, then gaining an MA in performance at Central School of Speech and Drama. For the last twelve years, he has worked as an actor, predominantly in comedy and children’s television. He is best known for playing pirate ‘Cook’ in the BAFTA-winning CBeebies series, Swashbuckle, for which he also writes many of the scripts. In 2020, he co-created, wrote and starred in Big Fat Like, a comedy sketch show commissioned by the BBC, which parodies the bizarre world of YouTube. He is also part of the writing team for CBBC’s Class Dismissed and The Amelia Gething Complex. When not writing or acting, Joseph loves painting, snorkelling and playing board games. He is a firm believer that houmous goes well with everything. The Good Hawk is his first novel and the sequel The Broken Raven is out in January 2021. Visit his website for more information
