He was listed at number 3 in the 100 Greatest British National Comedians for Channel 4's 100 Greatest Comedians of All Time countdown. Hailed as one of the foremost stand-ups of this generation, he’s got almost too much talent for just one stage and has stormed the acting world too, with major US roles such as General Erich Fellgiebel in Valkyrie with Tom Cruise, Roman Nagel in Oceans Twelve & Oceans Thirteen alongside George Clooney & Al Pacino and he’s even been in The Simpsons! He’s one of the funniest people on the planet and one of the nicest comedians to boot and he is sure to bring the house down in Mayrhofen!
