Rob Grant
Co-creater of the international smash hit science-fiction comedy series, Red Dwarf, Rob began his comedy writing career in radio, writing for 'just about every living comedian', and generating sitcoms and sketch shows, including the Sony Award-winning Son Of Cliché before moving into television.

He worked on the multiple award-winning series Three of A Kind and Carrott's Lib, then headed up the writing team on Spitting Image.

Since Red Dwarf, Grant has created, written and produced The Strangerers for SKY, and Dark Ages for ITV, and written four international bestselling novels, including Incompetence and his latest Fat.

Aside from his career as writer, producer and director, he has recently taken up the mike on the stand-up comedy circuit with his wryly observed take on life. Or, more accurately, barely-contained fury.
