Bang TV adds Christopher Poole to roster
Bang TV are always on the lookout for comedy directors but so many of them fall at the first hurdle, making us laugh. Poole raised a few chuckles.
Everybody knows that the best commercials are the funny ones.
Meet Christopher Poole, a director of comedy commercials, TV shows and films. He deals in the off-beat, pitching relatable characters into absurd situations.
He’s directed Emma Thompson, Jennifer Saunders, Russell Howard, and Bill Bailey, and smashed a series of hilarious commercials for PlayStation.
He also has a deft touch with the darker side of comedy, luring Garth Marenghi out of retirement for a Satanic Christmas special and catching the eye of Bang TV's Head of HeadHunting with his deeply disturbing ten minute techno-terror trip Aria.
Poole has the most luxuriant head of hair ever seen outside of a Pantene commercial, and would definitely prefer it if you didn’t call him Chris, Chrissie or Cliff.
