I've been a freelance writer for twenty-five years. 

Starting as a gag writer for Private Eye I have gone on to work as a script writer, journalist, creative, and copywriter for some of the country's top comedians, TV shows, radio shows magazines and websites.

TV shows I've worked on include Danger Mouse, 2DTV and The Joan Rivers Position.

People I've worked with include Al Murray, Jimmy Carr, Steve Coogan, Joan Rivers, Matt Forde and Jason Manford.

I've written speeches for business leaders, after-dinner speakers and provide a bespoke wedding speech service.

Also had the privilege of working as a tutor for the Arvon Foundation, and as a lecturer at Salford University.

Al Murray

Matt Owen worked with me on the 2015 General Election campaign with the Free United Kingdom Party in South Thanet. He's a relentless gag machine and he wrote a large and very funny chunk of the book that went with that campaign, Let's Re-Great Britain.

Animation Producer

Matt is an excellent writer who I first worked with on ‘2DTV’ - the world’s first animated topical sketch show, (a five series success for ITV, which required long hours and quick thinking). He’s a funny, talented man who works well within a team, he understands deadlines and is a pleasure to work with. I recommend him to you.

Susan Murray
Comedian, Writer and Actor

Matt is a great writer, always produces quality work either off his own back or in collaboration. I wouldn't hesitate to use him or recommend him. But whatever you do, don't let him drive your car.

I offer a broad and diverse range of writing services.

As every job is different please contact me to discuss rates and working together.

I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
