Greg is the writer and star of critically lauded Channel 4 sitcom Man Down, which returned for a second series in 2015. After playing infamously psychotic Head of Sixth Form ‘Mr Gilbert’ in The Inbetweeners (Channel 4) and its two spin off feature films, Greg went on to appear in BBC Three’s Cuckoo alongside Andy Samberg and Taylor Lautner, which earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme. In 2015 Greg began hosting UKTV’s new comedy show Taskmaster.
Greg has been on two sell out stand-up tours, most recently The Back of My Mum’s Head in 2013. Greg’s debut solo stand up show Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog was nominated for the prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2010. The DVDs of both shows were Top 10 bestsellers.
Greg’s TV appearances include hosting Would I Lie To You (BBC1), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two) and Live At The Apollo (BBC One). He has also made guest appearances on The Royal Variety Show, Room 101 (BBC One), Mock The Week (BBC Two), Let’s Dance For Comic Relief and Sport Relief (BBC One), The Graham Norton Show (BBC One), Live At The Apollo (BBC One), Frank Skinner’s Opinionated (BBC Two) and 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4). Greg was team captain on two series of Ask Rhod Gilbert (BBC One) with whom he also appeared on BBC Two’s Dangerous Roads.
Greg is one third of the anarchically brilliant sketch act We Are Klang, who performed four sell-out Edinburgh Festival shows and was nominated in 2006 for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. With We Are Klang, Greg wrote and starred in the group’s own sitcom series and a one-off comedy entertainment special for BBC Three.
