David Quantick (The Mule) and Will Smith (Mainlander) met on the set of The Thick Of It, where they were responsible for scripting some of the most creative swearing ever seen on television. Subsequently they worked on Emmy-winning US political satire show Veep, again bringing their creativity to bear on excellent swears. They talk to BBC Radio 2’s book boffin Joe Haddow about comedy writing, Hollywood, their novels, writers’ block and, er, swearing. If you’re easily offended, other events are available.Buy tickets
