He’s performed everywhere from the House of Commons to a double-decker bus in Sheffield. His 8 critically-acclaimed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe have gained him 29 four-star and three five-star reviews.

He was awarded Shortlist magazine’s Funniest New Comedian, for five years wrote a popular blog for BBC Ouch and regularly performs and writes sketches for comedy collective Abnormally Funny People, resident at London’s Soho Theatre.
