‘Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find’ – The Scotsman
‘His daftness is little short of surreal genius’ – The Stage
A gregarious, thought-provoking Geordie raconteur with a staggering turn of phrase, his slew of credits include ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, ‘The Stand-Up Show’, ‘The Comedy Store’, ‘The 11 O’ Clock Show’, ‘Does Doug Know’ and the Radio 4 sketch show ‘The Show What You Wrote’. Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines, he now boasts a large cult following round the country and particularly on his native Tyneside where he sells out theatres with his one man ninety minute shows. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs, his unique style is a joy to behold.
‘Very funny indeed. A poignant tale with lots of really good deadpan humour. He is a little like Eddie Izzard – but he made me laugh much more than Eddie Izzard ever could. Engaging, very slick and professional. Wonderful songs that had me and the audience in stitches. A very likeable comedian’ – The Edinburgh Enlightenment
