Directing

"We have been involved in working with dozens of directors in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia and we would recommend Jack Milner as one of, if not the best, we have worked with."

"Jack’s big talent is comedy. He’s brilliant at finding what’s funny in a scene and bringing that to life, while at the same time making sure the actors keep it real. We feel the latter is the key to good comedy and Jack is on exactly the same wavelength as us."  Writers,  Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood

He has directed for the West End (Soho Theatre “Roti With Ham” and the Arts Theatre “The One Off”), film and radio.

In addition he is renown as one of Britain’s top comedy facilitators and has worked with Channel 4, BBC TV and ITV as well as the National Theatre. For more information about Jack's business workshops visit www.standupandeliver.co.uk.
