This is my work biography:

With QI

I've worked on 3 series of QI as an Elf. I've contributed to 3 QI books - The Book of General Igonrance, The 'E' Annual and The 'H' Annual


As a producer:

I co-created (with John Lloyd and Richard Turner) and co-produce the BBC Radio 4 panel show The Museum of Curiosity now coming into its 5th series.

Here's a review:

"Lord Reith would be so proud. A show to entertain and inform in one ever-so-very clever package. John Lloyd cuts the ribbon to open the third level of the Museum, revealing yet more empty plinths. Filling them with their donations this week are cosmologist Marcus Chown who, frankly, made my brain bleed with his scientific proof of the afterlife, Terry Pratchett's brilliant idea of a time bank ("the minute in your pocket will never be devalued") and Shappi Khorsandi's great anti-dictator. The guests are gold dust but curator Jon Richardson is no slacker when it comes to the sliver-sharp retort. It will make you laugh as much as it will make you think. Pornography for the brain!" - Frances Lass, Radio Times

'Like a headmaster who, having been locked up in a lunatic asylum, has clambered over the wall and set up a rival establishment down the road...The whole thing works beautifully' - Philip Pullman.

'If you or I pitched this idea, we'd hardly have time to eat our free BBC biscuits before being shown the door' - Independent.


As a TV presenter/actor

I appeared in E4's the Warm Up Guy and C4's Very Important People,was one of the permanent panelists on the E4's Dirty Digest #interestingstory, and was one of the panelists on Talkback Thames' pilot The Qi Test.


As a standup Comedian

As a standup I've gigged all over the country. Here's a review I got from Chortle:

"...he’s smart on stage, too, with a penchant for quirky true stories, such as the feeble attempts to explain away Kung Fu star David Carradine’s death by auto-erotic asphyxiation... he has funny bones, and an engagingly upbeat delivery in which to package his borderline nerdy concerns."


In other work: I worked for BBC and RDF development, was the head of Warner Music Entertainment's comedy arm (comedybox), I exec produced Flight of the Conchords star Rhys Darby's standup DVD "Imagine That!"; was the joke collector for the Jimmy Carr and Lucy Greeves book The Naked Jape; Created a TV pilot that starred astronaut Buzz Aldrin; made an odd little Christmas movie called "A Kitten For Hitler" with British director Ken Russell; worked on an animation short which had me working in studio with Paul McCartney. I also get a shout in the latest John Hodgman book "That is All".
