Scripts / journalism / cartoons

Journalism has been mostly on music, food and travel, and mostly for the Guardian. A couple of columns over the years, including We're Jamming and Wyse Words, which was published by Chambers as a dictionary. Click on the images below for one or two examples. The full Guardian archive can be found here.

Most recent television writing credit, as Berger and Wyse, is for Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield's 2012 season of Harry and Paul. Also shorts, such as Covert (C4), Not Long Now (Nokia) and a half-hour drama, Animator, as part of Channel 4's Coming Up strand.

For more information about my collaborations with the pencil-ace Joe Berger, including our animation work, please visit Berger & Wyse. We're also on the GoComics website.

An irreverent neological talent ... Wyse’s gift lies in his ability to recognize hitherto unnamed objects and experiences for which there ought to be pitchy expressions. We can think him for screbe (‘the sound of an orchestra tuning up’), for librido (the sublimated sexual tension in a library) and for the surreality of woobris (“overconfident trees”)
