Neil is a very well known face on our TV screens. He is the only actor who can boast roles in the three most successful British comedy series of the last decade, Phoenix Nights, The Office and Peepshow. But it’s as the hapless, gypsy DJ Ray Von in Phoenix Nights that he is best known.
Neil also co wrote both series of the hugely popular TV series which became the fastest selling TV DVD of all time. He has two highly coveted British Comedy Awards as well as a string of others for his writing work on Phoenix Nights and That Peter Kay Thing and was nominated for a BAFTA in 2003.
As a multi-talented actor and presentor, Neil's easy going observational humour is always in huge demand at corporate events.
In the first series of The Office, Neil played Alex, hired in the first episode and fired in the last (in favour of a little person).
In Peepshow Neil has played David Mitchell’s arch nemesis Jeff Healy in every series.
He also appeared in two series of Eyes Down with Paul O’Grady.
Neil wrote his first feature film script ‘Going Off Big Time in 1999, it was released and distributed in 2000. Neil has also starred his second self penned feature film called ‘Charlie Noades R.I.P which was released in 2011 and co-starred John Thompson, John Henshaw and Dave Spikey.
Neil also took on the starring role as the then Liverpool FC manager Rafael Benitez in the hugely successful feature film '15 Minutes That Shook The World'. A comedy about what 'really' happened during half-time in what was probably the most exciting and memorable football game of recent times, the 2005 Champion's League Final!
More recently he has starred in ITV1s comedy "Benidorm" and Sky 1's latest hit sitcom "Mount Pleasant".
Neil has recently finished filming the "Hank Zipzer" children's TV series for CBBC which is based on Henry Winkler's (The Fonz from Happy Days) hugely popular series of books of the same title, due to be aired in January 2014.
