BIOGRAPHY:
Les began his career path as an outstanding and promising mathematician. At University, however, he spent almost the entire time in the drama department culminating in a few surreal performances at the Edinburgh Fringe. Mathematics went out the window with the lure of bearing your soul to complete strangers on the comedy circuit.

Les is a highly accomplished comedy writer working on a wide range of projects including: Chatty Man, Celebrity Juice, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Take Me Out, Mr and Mrs and most recently The Nightly Show.
