Jack Klaff


In 1999, Jack Klaff began work as a writer and storyteller in a scientific lab; this was especially meaningful to Jack because his first television job had been in ‘Space 1999;’ now, in 1999, he was aProfessor for the Public Understanding of Science and Technology, for real. Jack’s early work often involved science and space fiction; indeed, his first movie rôle was in 'Star Wars'. Other early jobs included a television episode of 'The Sweeney' whichalso featured the great British comedians Morecambe and Wise. And Jack’s London stage debut, a satirical show about sex, led bizarrely to long seasons at the Royal Shakespeare Company.


When people ask Jack what makes him ‘tick’, he’s fond of talking about his father who ran a watch-making business in Johannesburg. Indeed, in the early 1960’s, Jack’s Dad fixed Nelson Mandela’s watch, the watch on which Mandela counted out the minutes, hours, days and years of hissentence. In Jack’s work he anecdotes and metaphors; Klaff read Law and Economics before seeking a different kind of justice through storytelling.
