Julian Dutton has had a prolific career as a writer, actor & impressionist in radio & TV comedy, winning a British Comedy Award, a BAFTA, and a Radio Academy Gold Award during his career. Described by BBC Comedy as ‘one of the best vocal performers around,’ he co-created and co-wrote the BBC2 comedy series Pompidou starring Matt Lucas and was one of the driving forces behind the hit BBC1 comedy show The Big Impression with Alistair McGowan, which ran for four series and won a BAFTA.

Julian has written and starred in several of his own series on BBC Radio 4, including The Secret World, which was the winner of a Radio Academy Gold Award for Best Comedy. He also writes extensively for children’s TV, including the legendary Chucklevision and his own sitcom Scoop, which ran for 39 episodes. He has toured extensively as a stand-up, supporting such stars as Harry Hill & Al Murray, and his UK tour of his tribute to John Le Mesurier, Do You Think That’s Wise? received much acclaim in 2018-2020.

He is the author of five books, including a best-selling history of visual comedy Keeping Quiet, and the forthcoming Water Gypsies for The History Press, the story of living afloat on rivers & canals, based on his own upbringing on a houseboat on the Thames.
