We make stuff.
Wonky Chair Media is an Irish based TV & online production company with a simple goal. Make good stuff.
It is run by James Cotter. James is a multi-award winning Producer, head-writer and director. He created and was showrunner on smash-hit topical-comedy sketch show 'Republic Of Telly’ for its first 8 series. It is the longest running comedy show in Ireland. During his time there he discovered and brought to screen talent like The Rubberbandits, Damo & Ivor and many others. So far three other comedy shows have spun-off from the Republic.
James has also produced many of Ireland's biggest Youtube hits, with over 45 million views and counting, including global phenomenon 'Horse Outside' and two of the top 10 most popular Irish youtube videos of all time.
James also exec produced, co-wrote and directed acclaimed comedy sketch show 'Callan's Kicks', exec produced the first 2 seasons of hidden camera show 'The Fear', and produced the broadcast pilot for 'Zig and Zag's Superbloopers.’ amongst others. He EP'd, directed and co-wrote the critically acclaimed "Rubberbandits Guides" series and ‘The Rubberbandits Guide to 1916’ with Happy Endings.
We recently finished the satirical topical politics show 'This is Ireland' with Des Bishop.
James has a strong track record in bringing new shows to screen that return for multiple series... and for making things funny.
He has won Irish Film & TV Awards, Irish Social Media Awards, and been nominated for best screenplay three times by the Writer’s Guild of Ireland, along with a number of international awards.
He has a very large keyring, and knows what almost all the keys are for.
