I made my professional stage debut in 1978 when I had the great joy of playing Peter Pan. Since then I've been in about 80 professional productions, and counting. I've played the lead, supporting lead & cameo roles in dramas, comedies, farces, period pieces (Restoration comedies, Shakespeare, Coward, etc), musicals, physical theatre pieces, Dance Theatre pieces & cabarets.

I'm a contemporary dancer (I have an MA in Dance Studies) & choreographer (various dance styles), stand up comedian, singer, live entertainment host/compére, puppeteer, and I have immense fun as my comedy alter-ego male-burlesque persona, Major Suttle-Tease. Burlesque gives me the opportunity to combine many of my skills in one performance. In 2008 I won the UK Male Tournament of Tease, winning with the acrobatic duet I choreographed called Brokeback Disco Boys. In 2010 my troupe "More or Lesque!" won the EA award for Best Male Performer. I think I can safely say that my acts are unlike anyone else's in the burlesque scene and I consciously include socio-political commentary as part of my acts.
