Hello, and welcome to my life. I’ve spent most of it performing as an actor, stand-up comedian, and clown. Not a clown with make-up and a red nose. A clown in the Archetype of the well-meaning innocent. A tradition kept alive by Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Tommy Cooper, Steve Martin, Eric Morecambe, Pee Wee Herman, Rik Mayall, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Harry Hill.
I write jokes, sketches, and my first novel ‘The Sex Life of a Comedian’ is on sale now. The second novel is two thirds written. I’d like to write more, but I’m often on the road doing stand-up comedy, or spending time with my very young daughters.
My absurd style of stand-up comedy inspired Ben Elton to write a part especially for me in the feature film 'Maybe Baby', which was on general release around the world, including America. I’ve done two other feature films, and two sitcoms.
I've been in lots of Harry Hill's TV shows, sometimes wearing a costume, and sometimes playing a human.
I wrote for both series of 'The Sketch Show' (ITV1), which was re-made for the Fox Network in America, and also a German TV channel. I was a co-writer on several of Boothby Graffoe’s series for BBC Radio 4. My full CV is somewhere on this site. I specialise in comedy, but I also do serious stuff.
I love writing and performing, and am best known for playing Tinky Winky in ‘Teletubbies’. I consider my greatest achievement to be my novel 'The Sex Life of a Comedian’, a free sample of which is available on this site. Please don't read it if you're under eighteen, or easily shocked.
