Writer, comedian, Perrier nominee in a previous century, founder member of the Comedy Store Players - in the 1980s I was an averagely successful stand-up comedian. Hey, let's not be over-modest here - Britain's Most Averagely Successful stand-up comedian. 

In recent years I've written for Have I Got News For You and Not Going Out, and as a comic songwriter, co-creating the Radio 4 hit 15 Minute Musical and writing loads of songs for the hit BBC Childrens' Show Horrible Histories (see link Doh Re Me) also for the ITV topical comedy show 'Newzoids'.
