Rob Grant

Rob Grant


After being unceremoniously ejected from Liverpool University, Rob Grant started writing for BBC radio. Together with Doug Naylor, he created several radio series; including the multi-award-winning Son Of Cliché, and the surreal sitcom Wrinkles. Which earned the distinction of achieving the second worst audience evaluation rating ever; just being edged out of the top spot by a Radio One quiz show that provided the wrong answers to the questions. They also contributed material to just about every living comedian in the eighties; including Bob Monkhouse, Ken Dodd, Roy Hudd, and, yes, the Grumbleweeds.

Rob Grant: Writing Comedy

They moved onto television, supplying sketches for Three Of A Kind, and Carrott’s Lib among other shows; before heading up the writing team on Spitting Image, and penning the inexcusable No. 1 hit ‘The Chicken Song’.

Red Dwarf

Again with Doug, he co-created the international smash Red Dwarf for BBC television in 1983; and in 1988, BBC television actually got around to making it. In 1994, the show was awarded an international Emmy.

Rob Grant: Writer

His solo TV work includes the pre-medieval comedy series Dark Ages for ITV, starring Phil Jupitus and Alistair McGowan; and the alien invasion comedy The Strangerers for SKY.

He has written four novels: ‘Colony’, ‘Backwards’, ‘Incompetence’ and ‘Fat’, which were all international bestsellers.
