Aka "Jailbird", or "Scouse" - from Liverpool, home of The Beatles, he is a legend in his own lunchtime. After a brief flirtation with rock stardom doing original material, he then learned his trade playing the clubs and pubs of northern England.

Whist being a musical genius and a comedy legend, he is also very modest and definitely did not write this bio....
