ABK is a literal Renaissance man. A man for two seasons (autumn and winter). A stand up comedian and animator, ABK has written and performed for BBC radio, and for several indie video games. His stand up clip for 'BBC Scotland Short Stuff' went viral in 2017, with over 2 million views, and you wouldn't believe how little that impressed his dad.

A graduate of the London Film School, he won a student Royal Television Society award and was nominated for a Student Oscar in 2013. But he hardly ever mentions it.
