The funny man is best known as the host of the Mash Report and was previously featured in the Guardian’s Top 50 Comedians of the 21st Century list.

He has also been seen on the likes of Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Have I Got News For You, 8 of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Taskmaster to name a few.
