Recently took to writing and performing comedy as part of an early midlife crisis. Other parts of this crisis involved quitting his job, writing a book and learning to do the alphabet backwards.

I recently gave up my unfulfilling career in advertising in June to focus on working out a better way to live. I am writing a script with a friend and am a bit of a fitness fanatic. I live in a flat share in North London. I decided to try stand up comedy because I love to make people laugh. I like observing the weirdness of life and trying to make sense of it up on stage.
