In 2008 Indy was commissioned by Channel 4 to write and create the comedy show ‘Aint it Funny Being Coloured?’ which won a Broadcast award for comedy and was a Guardian Top 50 show of the year.

“he doesn’t think like other people and yet the work is inclusive and daring and smart and very funny. A wonderfully skewed look at the world”
John Landis (Film Director)
“He’s a very fresh voice, both in the world of comedy and the world of racial issues. He has the ability to talk about issues of identity without it becoming polemic, and that runs through all his writing.”
Charlie Brooker (TV Broadcaster / writer)
