Greg is the writer and star of the hit Channel 4 sitcom Man Down: “scales new heights of brilliance” (The Times), which returned for a fourth series in 2017. After playing infamously psychotic Head of Sixth Form ‘Mr Gilbert’ in The Inbetweeners (Channel 4) and its two spin-off feature films, Greg starred in three series of BBC Three’s Cuckoo alongside Andy Samberg and Taylor Lautner, which earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme- series four will air later this year. Greg is the host of Dave’s hit comedy show Taskmaster, which was first broadcast in 2015 and returns for its sixth series in 2018. Taskmaster was nominated for Best Comedy Entertainment at the 2017 and 2018 BAFTAs, for the International Emmy Awards Non-Scripted Entertainment 2017, Royal Television Society Awards Best Entertainment Programme in 2017 and for the Broadcast Awards Best Entertainment Show in 2016, which it went on to win in 2018.
As a stand-up, Greg’s debut solo show Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog was nominated for the prestigious Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2010, and went on to have a three-time extended sell-out national tour. In 2013 Greg returned with another sell-out tour with The Back of My Mum’s Head. The DVDs for both shows became Top 10 bestsellers. Greg’s 2017 tour, You Magnificent Beast sold out the Hammersmith Apollo and Cardiff Motorpoint Arena and was later released as a Netflix Special.
