Larry is a BAFTA-winning comedy writer and actor,
best known for the BBC1 sitcom 'Ghosts' and
the hit sketch show 'Horrible Histories'.
Larry has worked in the film and television industry for over 15 years, with credits which encompass both mainstream comedy
(Armstrong & Miller, Tracey Ullman, Murder in Successville, Psychob*tches, Paddington 2) and high profile family shows (Jim Henson, Dick & Dom, Peter Rabbit, Shaun The Sheep: Farmageddon). 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).
In 2019 the sitcom Ghosts was launched on BBC1, with Larry as co-creator, writer and star. It received a glowing critical reception, quickly becoming the most watched comedy on UK television, and was immediately recommissioned for two further series. The show will play on HBO Max on the US, and an American remake is in development with CBS.
In addition to ongoing Ghosts duties, Larry has written commissioned feature scripts for companies including Aardman Pictures and BBC Films, and on TV projects for Channel 4, BBC, HBO and Showtime.
Larry is a born-and-bred Brightonian, who likes dogs, films, classic VW's and (on the whole) people.
