The winner of Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe in 2012 and has also made a dozen appearances on Mock The Week.
He has been speaking about quitting comedy since 2013, saying he wanted to pursue his first love of being a cartoonist. ‘Plan A was always to be a syndicated cartoonist but after getting rejection letters I shifted to Plan B.
‘But stand-up – I've been there and done it now. I'm grateful for everything it's given me, including the chance to be what I always wanted to be – a cartoonist. It'll be a step back financially but personality-wise and creatively, a step forward as far as I'm concerned.’
He released his first book of illustrations, Pun Direction, in 2013 It was billed as a collection of '500 jokes, 30 cartoons and one recipe’.
