Background

Radio 4

Marc's first ever credit was for the BBC Radio 4 show Weekending. (President Bill Clinton visiting his old room at Oxford - we all remember our first sketch!.) He continued to write for Weekending before branching into TV and stage, including taking shows to the Edinburgh Fringe.

In the 2000s, Marc got his first TV credits, writing gags for the 11 O’Clock Show on Channel 4, the show that launched Ali G and Ricky Gervais. After meeting James Harris at NewsRevue, they collaborated on a number of writing projects some of which are featured on their Wikipedia page.
