He's one of the most influential writers that has shaped the last 30 years of British Comedy. This week, James sits down with writer, comedian, author, playwright and director, Ben Elton. Together they discuss how he began writing from the age of 12 and how his formative years lead him on to his first major job as a sitcom writer on The Young Ones, the inspiration behind one of his biggest and most successful shows to date, We Will Rock You, and how he feels about his return to stand up comedy, after 15 years.
