Biography

Harry Enfield is a BAFTA-winning comedian, actor, writer and director who began his career on Channel 4's Saturday Live. Harry has since been involved in some of the most iconic and successful comedy shows of the last three decades.

Harry set up a writing partnership with Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson which spawned his own BBC Show, first with Harry Enfield's Television Programme, and then Harry Enfield and Chums, with co-stars Paul Whitehouse and Kathy Burke. Famous characters created included Tim - nice but dim, Smashie and Nicey, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, Mr Cholmondley-Warner and Kevin the Teenager - who later starred in Harry’s own film, 2000's Ibiza-set Kevin & Perry Go Large. Harry later created a new batch of characters for Sky One’s Harry Enfield's Spanking New Show. Harry also appeared as King George VI in the 2004 comedy feature Churchill: The Hollywood Years.

Harry’s awards include the 1998 British Comedy Award for top BBC1 Comedy Personality and Silver Roses of Montreux in 1990 (for Norbert Smith), 1995 (Smashie And Nicey - End Of An Era) and 1998 (Harry Enfield and Chums). In 2009, Harry received a BAFTA alongside Paul Whitehouse for their BBC1 series Harry & Paul.

Harry played Jim Stonem in E4’s hit series Skins and also directed a number of episodes in its second and third series. He recently co-wrote, directed (and starred) in the 4th series of Harry and Paul for Tiger Aspect/BBC .
