Stand up comedian, writer, director, and trained physiotherapist, Barry Ferns has written for the BBC and Channel 4, and has won awards for both stand up and directing short films.
Barry took his first stand-up steps in 1995, aged 17. He went on to win the Comedy Store New Act competition and storm the final of the Leicester Square Comedian Of The Year competition.
In 2007, in a show of dedication to his Edinburgh Fringe Show (This Belongs To Lionel Richie), he legally changed his name … to Lionel Richie.
