Completely mad but delightful stand-up comedian, actor and ‘marathon man’, who recently completed 43 marathons around the UK in aid of Sport Relief. Those who dismissed him before as a celeb who owed his credence to his shocking transvestite tendencies, may now have to eat their words. Lovely funny man!

I’m a self-taught artist from the North of England and I like to inject a bit of humour wherever possible, whether it’s in my writing (see my poems), or my artwork.

    I saw him for the first time on TV as he was a guest on Top Gear a week ago (our TV programs are a bit behind yours I am sure). Fell in love immediately!! Great likeness. I have not heard him doing a stand-up nor have a seen his acting, but I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open.
    Thanx for sharing!

  • His Stand -up comedy is like no-one else’s. He has me in fits of laughter! Take a look at this
