He is a regular on British topical panel game Mock the Week, Out to Lunch (co-hosting with fellow comedian Rob Deering), and Never Mind the Buzzcocks (Series 18, Episode 2 and Series 20, Episode 4) . He has also made brief appearances on Would I Lie To You?
On BBC Radio 4, he has appeared on the shows Banter, hosted by Andrew Collins, and Political Animal, on which he ended his routine by giving John Oliver a piggy-back ride which resulted in one "hurty-elbow", although this did not make it to the broadcast.

"I always wondered about that woman who had that face transplant. If you went to bed with her, would that technically count as a threesome?"
"What was wrong with train toilet doors that just locked, instead of this multiple choice system? If anything goes wrong, you'll be sitting there while the whole toilet wall slowly slides away, unveiling you like a prize on a quiz show. For 500 points, a shitting woman!"
