About Me

I’m delighted to be returning to the West End production of Jamie. Since my last appearance as Hugo, I have embarked on an International tour of his critically acclaimed one-man show YOUR WRONG which played over a 130 performances in 15 countries. This past summer, I starred in Eugene O’Neill’s classic HUGHIE directed by Mike McShane.

My television and film credits include:  MAN DOWN  (C4), CATASTROPHE (C4), SIBLINGS (BBC), UNCLE (BBC), as well as playing Terry Gilliam in HOLY FLYING CIRCUS, BBC4’s BAFTA nominated drama about the Pythons.

As the Artistic Director of Comedians’ Theatre Company, I have produced and starred in over 15 shows in the past 13 years including True West, School for Scandal, Killer Joe, Gagarin Way and Talk Radio, directed by Stewart Lee. 

I’m also a decent stand up comedian  and I gig regularly on the UK and international comedy circuit and was the winner of the prestigious Perrier Award in 2006.  I’m also lead singer of the glam rock band Muscle.
