Larry is a BAFTA-winning comedy writer and actor, best known for the hit BBC sketch show Horrible Histories and the critically acclaimed Sky 1 comedy Yonderland.
A graduate in Film, TV and Drama, Larry has worked in the industry
for over 15 years, with credits which encompass both mainstream comedy
(Armstrong & Miller, Tracey Ullman, Murder in Successville, Psychob*tches) and high profile children's TV (Jim Henson, Dick & Dom, All Over the Place). He was a principle writer and star of the
historical sketch show Horrible Histories, which has won more than 20
major awards, including two National Comedy Awards, four successive BAFTAs (a Guinness World Record) and the Prix Jeunesse for the best
children's show of the last 50 years.
Following this, he continued to work with his Horrible Histories
co-stars, creating the critically acclaimed fantasy sitcom Yonderland,
which ran for three series on Sky 1 with Larry as
showrunner. He has also moved into feature films, co-writing
and starring in the movie Bill (BBC Films/BFI), a comic take on
Shakespeare's missing years, described as “the funniest movie this year”
(The Sun) and “a crowd pleasing treat” (Mark Kermode, The Observer). Since then he has continued to write commissioned feature scripts for companies including Aardman Pictures and BBC Films.
In 2018 it was announced that the six-strong troupe from Horrible Histories, Yonderland and Bill would star in a new sitcom for BBC1 - Ghosts. Six episodes were filmed in Autumn 2018, with Larry also co-writing and executive producing, and the series will premiere later in 2019.
Larry is a born-and-bred Brightonian, who likes dogs, films, classic VW's and (on the whole) people.
