Justin is a natural his exuberant, larger than life personality and cheeky northern charm have allowed him to quickly build a reputation on the live comedy circuit. He's in tremendous demand and comperes regularly at The Comedy Store in both London and Manchester, and headlines at every major comedy venue in the land. He's recently appeared in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Bangkok (nice work if you can get it!) and has joined Jimmy Carr, Dave Spikey and John Thomson as a special guest on live shows.
He is now perhaps most recognisable as the hapless Young Kenny in Phoenix Nights - who spent the whole of the second series with his face painted as a tiger.
In great demand as a Stand-Up, Actor, TV and Radio Presenter, Voiceover Artiste and corporate performer and is busy developing several original ideas for television. This is all a far cry away from being fired from his day job in 2000 over a misunderstanding with a parking ticket, company car, and a firm of Salford bailiffs!
