GRIM, born in Devon in the late eighties, was on track to become an esteemed lecturer in Literature and Philosophy, but decided he had had enough of lecturing to undergrads who pay £9k a year in fees and don't listen. Instead he wants to lecture to idiots who pay £5 to watch live comedy and shout abuse back. His material is gleaned from years of disappointment and philosophical enquiry. His influences are Stewart Lee and Doug Stanhope.
