Following an eight-year stint co-editing Viz Comic, Alex moved into writing children’s TV comedy. His credits include the Best Children’s Comedy BAFTA winning Class Dismissed, as well as Aardman’s Lloyd of the Flies, My Little Pony, Mr Bean, Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed, Danger Mouse, It’s Pony, Lego, Oddbods, Nova Jones & Go Jetters.
Alex has developed shows with CBBC and CBeebies in-house, and with indies such as Blue Zoo, Tiger Aspect, Hat Trick, Comedy Central, Gaumont and Leopard Pictures.
As an animator, he has produced films with Vic Reeves and Ross Noble; as an illustrator, he has been published in a series of bestselling Harper Collins books; as a director he was behind a series of Channel 4 Comedy Blaps, voiced by Steve Coogan and Sarah Millican, and as himself, he appeared on both series of Comedy Central’s Grouchy Young Men as a rather grouchy talking head.
Alex’s sketch writing has been featured on Radio 4’s Pick of the Week. He still knocks out comics for Viz, 20 odd years later. Basically, he will do absolutely anything he can to avoid real work.
