You may recognise him from Britain's Got Talent 2018 (ITV) coming runner up after wooing the nation with his randomly unique act. He describes himself as the worlds best aspergers, gay, dyslexic, cross-lateral, web-toed comedian. All this makes stand-up the perfect career choice! Nevertheless, before discovering life as a comic he's had an astonishing total of 67 jobs even including a stint as an organ player.
