Words fail me. I just can’t… I mean…this guy has the worst temper I have ever seen. (Caution: rude words).

Can you even imagine trying to play in a band with this guy?!!

Thanks to @kevinknoxx. Definitely one of my top ten clips ever.

I’m very excited about this tonight, as part of Channel 4′s Random Acts slot. And you can now watch it here.


Back in 2009 I got sent a script by a young comedian, Philip O’ Shea. It was for an animation, and since I don’t normally make animation, I was ready to politely reply, ‘Thanks, but I’m not the right guy’, but then I read the first [click to continue…]

This is lovely. Some of you may remember the amazing Horsebic system of fitness I posted some time back. Well, now there’s a new system in town – Prancercise. So, are you ready to ‘cut the noose and let it loose’?

Thanks to Edwin Stratton. Update: here’s a brilliant article on the Prancercise phenomenon by Terrence McCoy.

Definitely the best use of the word ‘Mazeltov’ ever btw. Thanks to James Hart for this horrible horror.

Yup. Six more episodes will be coming your way earlyish next year on Channel 4. We’ll be filming in September, and I can’t wait to be working again with my lovely, ridiculously brilliant cast. So far I’ve written 3 shows, and I’m currently writing/struggling with ep 4, as I’m not sure if I should give Dad the ability to levitate, or to turn himself into a talking sheet of aluminium. Hmmm…. Anyway, not to give anything away, but I promise one of the shows will be particularly ‘epic’ in its storyline. Back to the scribbling, and thanks for all the niceness towards the show – it’s really appreciated.

I wonder if this will ever catch on?

Here’s the new short I made with the genius that is Peter Serafinowicz. We premiered it last week at the fantastic Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland.

All hail our fantastic leader, Arpoovian Shebber-Shenty!

Drive massive car slowly towards camera. Get out massive car slowly. Rap. Get back in massive car slowly. Drive massive car away slowly…
