I am a writer and comedian.
I grew up in Jersey.
I perform at comedy clubs, the Edinburgh Festival, and at theatres with my own shows which include Much Obliged, 10 Arguments I Should Have Won, Misplaced Childhood and How To Be Cool. I've also supported acts such as Ardal O'Hanlon, Johnny Vegas and Ricky Gervais.
You can also visit my website, where you can watch the films from "10 Arguments I Should Have Won" and "Misplaced Childhood" in the "Clips" section, as well as some footage of me in The Thick Of It, in which I play inept Tory researcher Phil Smith. I have written for various tv and radio shows with my writing partner Roger Drew. We were the main writers on Time Trumpet
Rog is also a brilliant illustrator - we have a book out, The Joy Of No Sex which you can buy here.
We also do a PODCAST for GQ.
