I’m Michael Eckett
I’m a London based writer and performer working in comics, theatre and podcasting.
I’m currently writing comics including creating Forged with Ryan Jenkyns and David B Cooper
As artistic director of theatre company The Sigil Club, I wrote, directed and produced six productions in five years. We performed as part of the Camden Fringe and Greater Manchester Fringe Festivals and have sold out The Roundhouse Studio Theatre, The Etcetera Theatre and the Hen & Chickens Theatre.
I’m one quarter of the Comic Book Classroom podcast team pie serving as co-writer, performer and sometimes lyricist. Before that I was one of the hosts of The Orbiting Pod; the comic book criticism podcast from Eisner Award winning Orbital Comics.
“Quite a lot of the play is in its script, which Eckett seems to have crafted both carefully and playfully”.A Younger Theatre
“The laughs came thick and fast. There was such a rapid turnover of jokes that many would have been missed. “On the Fringe
“The cast are excellent; particularly writer/director Michael Eckett”.Camden Fringe Voyeur
“There’s no doubt Eckett is writing to please himself first and foremost, but when the writing is as fiercely intelligent as his, it’s of little consequence.”views from the gods
