At 19, he became one of the youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition, following in the footsteps of Peter Kay, Lee Mack and Sarah Millican. 3 years later, his debut Edinburgh show “OK Zoomer” was nominated for NextUp’s “Best Show” award and was released as a special in October 2023, with over 365,000 views. His material, based around his experience as a Gen Z, led Chortle to describe him as “the voice of his generation”.

His YouTube channel, featuring sketches and stand-up clips has over 450k subscribers and 200m views. He has produced multiple online series, including “When they go to a foreign country in a Hollywood film” and “Asking black and white people the same questions about…”. He has produced branded content for Amazon Prime, Branston, Olli Olli World and Spotlight Oral Care. 

He has appeared on 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), The Stand-Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Comedy Central Live, Person on a Chair (Channel 4), The BBC New Comedy Awards, Get Off My Phone! (Dave) and Jokes Only An AI Can Tell (Channel 4). He has performed at Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival and across Europe for the Comedy Store.
His first script “Born to Rule” was optioned by Boffola Pictures, who produced a taster directed by Rosco 5 and starring Game of Thrones’ Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and he is currently developing a scripted project with Hat Trick.

He has appeared as an actor in The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff (BBC2) with Stephen Fry and David Mitchell, The Go-Betweenies (Radio 4) with David Tennant, and Waybuloo (CBeebies).
He is also fluent in French, and performed French stand-up in Lyon for 6 months.
