Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I got voted sexiest comic, but it was written up as 'isn't it weird how really ugly blokes can be strangely alluring?' Right - so I'm top of the poll of really ugly blokes that you want to sleep with but more out of curiousity than attraction. See more »

Trivia:

In an interview he stated his five favourite places as being San Fransisco, Robin Hood's Bay, St Helens, The Brown Edge public house and his parents' refrigerator. See more »

Trademark:

Hoarse, northern English accent

Virgo
