Our Panto Scripts – The Author

Brian Luff’s panto scripts have been produced in theatres, schools and arts centres all over the UK. When he’s not writing about heroes, villains and custard pies, Brian is a multi award-winning short film maker and TV writer. After starting his career as a journalist and cartoonist, he co-wrote the cult Channel 4 comedy series Pets and wrote sketches for Simon Pegg’s Channel 5 series “We Know Where You Live”. He has since scripted numerous sketch shows at Edinburgh Fringe venues, as well as a critically acclaimed stage comedy “The Moon’s Not a Virgin Anymore”. Brian has edited the official BBC Comedy web site and been an occasional visiting lecturer in comedy writing at Bournemouth University and the BFI. For the forthcoming season you’ll find Brian’s panto scripts on this site for Aladdin, Cinderella, Jack & the Beanstalk, Dick Whittington, Sleeping Beauty, Robin Hood, Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, Puss in Boots and Mr Scrooge.
