Ant Dewson


Ant used to write comedy for TV and radio. He then discovered that writing advertising and marketing nonsense pays much better. He is currently working on a sitcom about his fat friend Dave, and a poster campaign for trousers. If you’d like to find out about Ant’s other life as a well-respected copywriter, click here.

Ant is a former choir-boy. He has sung in almost every church in Ipswich as well as Ely Cathedral, Wimbledon Theatre, Fairfield Halls, Guildford Cathedral, Cadogan Hall and on the pitch at Wembley Stadium before the Challenge Cup Final. He’s even sung on Songs of Praise, despite being a non-believer.
"The tiny room was packed with punters; no mean feat considering the competition. Musical comedy is always risky, but Dewson's songs are genuinely funny, and often very clever in their wordplay and construction. Catchy tunes with innocent melodies lead to filthy final punchlines, which land perfectly almost every time.”
"With some polish he could be really good."
(ThreeWeeks - Edinburgh 2013)
