Since then he has performed stand up all over the world and appeared on numerous television and radio programmes including the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Comedy Central, ABC Australia, THREE New Zealand, Absolute Radio and many more.

He is also a clever actor and the other characters that pop up as he herds us through his hilarious hour are pitch-perfect.” The Scotsman

He is now a top circuit act in the UK, as well as a highly sought after corporate awards host and TV warm up artist. He has regularly provided the studio warm up for BBC1’s Graham Norton Show, ITV’s Loose Women and Ch4’s Deal or No Deal.
