Award-winning author Mark Billingham joins Paul Boross to discuss a career of comedy and crime-writing. Mark shares a lifetime of lessons from getting laughs on the stage to getting gasps on the page. Mark knows that humour and horror are distant cousins and that a bit of laughter can get you through murderous moments.
“In order for the dark to be truly dark, there has to be light so you can compare the two.”
Mark draws on his well-rounded career to give advice and share stories about the power of humour. From engaging audiences to killing a crowd, Mark has tips and tricks that even Detective Tom Thorne has not thought of. This week, only on The Humourology Podcast.
