My name's Steve and I'm the lucky so-and-so who's been invited to contribute to BBC Comedy's social media stuff.
Have you spotted an 'SS' on the end of one of our tweets
and wondered what it means? They're my initials. It's from me.
During my time at BBC Comedy I'm hoping to create a lively community of people who are passionate about all things funny on Aunty Beeb.
My background? I started out as a Question Writer for The Weakest Link
way, way back when Anne Robinson still had wrinkles.
Q. According to the title of their 1982 UK Number One hit single... what at 'E' is the name of the girl that Dexy's Midnight Runners wanted to "come on"?
No. I didn't last long. Though I'm still very proud to have the unique distinction of having been the weakest link on The Weakest Link's production team.
Since then I've had more success (i.e. not been sacked) by working as the online community manager and social media producer for small, performance-based shows like The Apprentice
, Britain's Got Talent
and The X Factor
So what do I find funny?
is the first truly successful interactive live stand-up show. It's the only night of its kind to really nail the concept. I suspect it's the future... but I also said that about Spokey Dokeys, so who knows?
My top Desert Island comedy flicks are Airplane!, The Man With Two Brains and This Is Spinal Tap. Oh and Ferris Bueller's Day Off... and Evil Dead II... and Shaun of the Dead and... ok, you get the point.
As a big fan of radio comedy, I love the way that The Now Show
has embraced Twitter. Social media isn't just tacked on as a token gesture, fans can now actually contribute to the programme in a meaningful way. It's something I'd like to see more of, particularly on topical shows like The News Quiz
and Have I Got News For You
Watch this space for news about Ask Rhod Gilbert and Nevermind The Buzzcocks...
So that's enough about me, let's get talking.
What do you want to get out of BBC Comedy's Facebook
profiles?Social Steve Saul will be a-tweetin' and a...updatin' with us for the next three weeks. Do say hello!
