After the failure of Origen's Wake to get a TV series, I found myself in a double act with Simon Farnaby called Peterford Golf Club. One of our sketches featured a song by a washed-up New Romantic pop star called Gary Le Strange. When the double act dried up at the end of 2002, I decided to expand Le Strange into an hour-long show.
The resulting show, Polaroid Suitcase, went on to win me the Perrier Award for Best Newcomer at the 2003 Edinburgh Fringe and the Chortle Award for Best Newcomer in 2004. Two further shows followed, each accompanied by a CD album, and for the next five years, Gary was a full-time job, finding his way onto various radio and television programmes along the way.
This section is a small selection of his work - the music, the videos, the pictures, the words and the story of his life...
