History

Or a list of impressive things I can say I've done when the Small Talk dries up. 

 

Stand Up Comedian

The Biggie, for eight years I was a standup comic, my entire contribution to the ouvre is now relegated to this page

SKYFALL

Whilst inbetween careers I signed up to be an extra, it was a bit embarrassing and I got two jobs out of it, one was to be in the background of a dating advert filmed at the V&A and the other was to be in Skyfall. So I spent a few days knocking around on set being all bewildered. One the last day I got put in a really visible chair in the scene where Q gets hacked. Some extras spend lives waiting for gig that sweet. I retired straight after.

ANIMATION

Back when Flash was a thing I did a bunch of animations and videos for bands.

WRITING

I got an MA in Creative Writing and have been (like most people my age) trying to write a novel.

RADIO

I used to do a lot of radio stuff and almost got the set - I was definitely on BBC Radios 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6music, but never 1.

KEVIN McCLOUD

Talking of Radio 4, I had my own story on there called Dad Designs, in which I stated how I wished Kevin McCloud was my dad. By a twist of fate and he having gone to uni with the head of BBC comedy he agreed to be in it. Weird

BARACK OBAMA

He follows me on twitter, can't remember why.

POP STAR

I once recorded a spoken word story type voiceover for a song, that song was played on 6Music, so I'm a kind of pop star, no?
