Mike Wozniak talks to Man Down creator Greg Davies
Mike Wozniak is one of the funniest comedians doing the rounds at the moment. Nominated for best newcomer in 2008 by if.comedy, the Portsmouthian has spent the last nine years gaining plaudit upon (within and around) plaudit: a ‘real star in the making‘ said Time Out and ‘cleverly offbeat as well as occasionally off-beam” said The Independent. You probably, and quite rightly too, know him from Britain’s best sitcom over the last few years, ‘Man Down’. Catch him in Blackwood while you can. For reasons of criminal negligence you may be vulnerable to soul-draining litigation and months of being dragged through the courts if you fail.
