Jon Long Lands New BBC R4 Pilot

Jon Long is piloting a new comedy show for BBC Radio 4, based on environmental issues.

‘Carbon Lifeforms’ will be fronted by stand-up Jon Long, whose day job is in waste management. He will team up with scientist Tara Shine in a format that promises ‘jokes, sketches, guests and music that (carbon) capture all things climate and environment’.

The pilot episode, to be recorded in July infront of a live audience in London, will focus on the environmental impact of food, and feature comedian Sikisa and food writer Jay Rayner as guests.

Long, who is performing a show called Still A Planet Killer at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, works as an education officer for the Western Riverside Waste Authority, which covers part of west and south London.
