About

chirs 1Hi, I’m Chris, and this is home of Moldiwarts Scripts.

The name ‘Moldiwarts’ come from one of favourite characters from one of my favourite scripts. He is a evil villain but has some of the best jokes and one liners and is actually quite likeable. You are never sure where you are with him.

I am a huge fan of classic tv and radio comedy from the UK including Round The Horne, Hancock, Steptoe & Son, Monty Python, Hello Cheeky, Are You Being Served, I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again, Dads Army and many many more. These, and more, have been an inspiration to me since I was a kid.

There is also the slapstick/wacky elements or Laurel and Hardy, Vic and Bob, Buster Keaton, Mrs Browns Boys, and the Carry On films (yes, old and new, classic and contemporary) that I admire, and those elements of visual comedy are always evident in the best pantomimes. The visual comedy is just as important, if not more, than the verbal.

 I have never wanted to be in the spotlight. I would much rather promote live music or work behind a mixing desk than be up on stage in front of people. Likewise, I absolutely love watching a group of talented actors perform a script that I have spent time writing, hearing the audience laugh in all the right places, applaud at the end of a scene and get actors come up to me and say “Thanks for giving me such great lines.” or “I want you to write me a great part again next year.”.

The scripts on this site are a labour of love. The Pantomime scripts are silly, funny, witty and full of bad jokes, one liners and an almost coherent plot … just like panto should be.

Thanks for reading.  I hope you like what you find here.
