Person details

Paul McKenzie
Writer / Producer, UK

Paul McKenzie is a writer / producer who received his first break over twenty years ago writing on Channel 4′s ground breaking black sitcom, Desmond’s. Produced by Humprhrey Barclay productions, he and a team of other young black writers were given the opportunity to reflect their community while learning the skills of making the widest possible audience laugh through honest identifiable comedy. He has since written for numerous other comedies such as My Family, and more recently has developed and produced several successful sitcoms for CBBC (Kerching, My Almost Famous Family, Dani’s House, and Sadie J). With a love of warm family comedy he believes adult comedies have a lot to learn from children’s comedies … and vice versa.
