writer and digital creative; lead writer, comedy political podcast Strong And Stable
Andrea Mann is a writer of jokes, scripts, articles, spoof news, parody songs, online quizzes, the funny words around pictures and more. Previously the comedy editor of The Huffington Post UK, her credits cover online, radio, TV and live shows – including The News Quiz, Newsjack and Newsrevue. As part of the creative team for social media agency That Lot, she is the lead writer on the acclaimed comedy political podcast Strong And Stable, hosted by David Schneider. The highlight of her satirical writing career used to be her spoof news piece Woman Gives Birth To Baby – which garnered more views than the Huffington Post’s true royal baby news story – until she managed to get #BritishThreatLevels top of the worldwide trends on Twitter.
