Welcome to the first episode of the second season of Get Yourself A Proper Job. 

This season consists of 8 more episodes released once a week for the next 8 weeks. 

This episode I talk to Andy Riley.  

Andy is a comedy writer, illustrator and children's book author.  His credits (along with co-writer Kevin Cecil) list like a Whose Who of British comedy, writing for the likes of Harry Enfield, Armstrong and Miller, Tracy Ullman, Little Britain, Veep, Matt Berry and many, many more. 

We talk about his comedy beginnings, his love of comics, the competitive nature of comedy and how to start a comedy writing career.  It's a lively chat, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope you do too.
