An experienced copywriter who specialises in using humour to create a truly memorable reading experience, or to really drive a message home.
I can turn my hand to many topics, and tailor material to any channel or style required.
To put it simply - I am passionate about quality writing.
Why funny works
It's dead easy for writing to turn out dull and stale.
It can be a big problem - readers quickly become uninterested and will tune out like the adverts have just come on. This is a shame. Your stories deserve to be heard! (or read, as it were...)
Adding a bit of comedy can go a long way - it is a powerful tool for making an article, campaign, or message engaging and, most importantly, memorable. It can help a piece of writing be something more. Something that the audience will actually want to share and discuss.
Add the funny to the functional and leave readers wanting more. Like Elvis at a KFC.
Adding funny to:
Providing original pieces full of thought and whimsy that will add an extra spark to your publication.
I can help you to tell your story in a way that will interest and entertain a wide public audience.
Do you know what you want to write but need to give it some structure and wit? Then I'm the friendly ghost for you!
Creating material for your digital zines, blogs, PDFs (and everything in between!) that will keep your readers coming back for more.

"I am so glad I found George to help fill the gaps in my writing with thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud comedy."
"Working with George is an amazing experience. He spiced up my writing exactly as I wished and we will definitely be using him more in the future.
"Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant. Absolute satirical genius. Professionally elicited my requirements and over-delivered. Highly recommended"

Why add humour?
It's dead easy for writing to turn out stale and dull.
It's a big problem—readers become uninterested and will tune out like the adverts have come on. This is a shame, because your stories deserve to be heard! (or read, as it were)
A wee bit of humour can go a long way—and that's where I come in. I add the fun to the functional. Engrossing your readers and leaving them wanting more like Elvis at Burger King.
I enjoy humor-reading it, watching it and writing it. Writing it is the hardest. But that doesn’t stop me from including it when writing copy. Comedy is an effective tool for delivering a powerful message and a common theme in the most memorable advertising campaigns.
When I first started freelance copywriting I used humor all the time. I’ve backed off since then. The most important goal in copywriting is to present your message clearly and persuasively. If humor helps, great. If not, forget it. So let’s consider a few questions to guide you in humor writing.
