and Marianne Fry.
He was educated at Stout's Hill, Uppingham School
and Queens' College, Cambridge. He lives in Norfolk,
England and New York City. He is an erstwhile comedy
collaborator of Hugh Laurie. Rather tellingly, he was

of Kent" in an interview with Michael Parkinson.

was voted amongst the top 50 comedy acts ever by fellow
comedians and comedy insiders.
