Nev Fountain is a multi-award winning writer, who has worked mainly in radio and television comedy. Starting out on Radio 4’s Weekending sketch show, he was given the Peter Titheradge bursary for promising new comedy writers.

He is chiefly known for his work as principle writer on the award winning Dead Ringers, in both its radio and TV incarnations (alongside writing partner Tom Jamieson), but he has also contributed to a huge range of programmes, such as Have I Got News For You, The Impression Show, 2DTV, The News Quiz, Loose Ends and his own radio sitcom Elephants to Catch Eels, to name but a few.

He is currently working on a children’s sitcom, Scoop, which he helped to devise. He is also a gag writer for legendary satirical magazine Private Eye.
