Jonny is a talented actor, writer, performer and producer.

Last autumn his comedy narrative series TOGETHER which he wrote and starred in and was produced by Cave Bear Productions, aired on BBC Three to critical acclaim. The series was derived from his successful BBC Radio 4 comedy HARD TO TELL which he also wrote and starred in and ran for two series.

Jonny co-wrote comedy series CHICKENS for Sky, produced by Big Talk Productions and starred in the series as co-lead with fellow writers Joe Thomas and Simon Bird. Jonny is currently co-writing an episode of FOREIGN BODIES, the Tom Basden created comedy narrative, with Tim Key. The project is being made by Eleven Films for E4, EOne and TNT.

Jonny  won the 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer for his show MOSTLY ABOUT ARTHUR (directed by Stefan Golaszewski), which Nica Burns described as: "a delicious hour of character comedy...unexpected, highly original, very funny. Watch out for him" He also appeared in Tom Basden's play PARTY at the Edinburgh Festival which won a Fringe First award.

Outside of his own projects Jonny has acted in many great projects including reprising the role of Ian for series 4 of the hit BBC3 sitcom HIM & HER, and the regular role of Tom Oliver in Danny Boyle's series BABYLON written by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong.

Jonny has several of his own ideas in development including comedy narrative WOW CORPS with Hat Trick Productions.
