Cambridge Mathematics drop-out and now professional poker player Ken burst onto the UK comedy scene after reaching the final of the 2015 BBC Radio New Comedy Award. His unique, analytical style made him instantly recognisable.

Since then, Ken has filmed for BBC One, BBC Three and Comedy Central online. He is currently working on his BBC Radio 4 series (which he will write and star in), out Autumn 2018.

Last year Ken performed his highly anticipated debut hour, Chinese Comedian, at the Edinburgh Festival to high acclaim. He also co-wrote The Canon, a literary sketch show – like sparknotes, only funny. 

“It was a smart, impressive and brilliantly funny tour-de-comedy” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

“A fiercely accomplished talent“ – The Scotsman
