He co-created, wrote & performed in BBC1's hit comedy series 'The Big Impression,' and his TV sitcom 'Scoop' for CBBC is now in its third series.

He has had columns in 'The Sunday Times,' 'The Independent on Sunday' and the 'London Evening Standard.' He has written two books, 'Shakespeare’s Journey Home: a Traveller’s Guide through Elizabethan England,’ and ‘The Bumper Book of Curious Clubs,’ a miscellany of eccentric societies.
