Rory is a brilliant & versatile comedy writer & performer as well as a highly experienced presenter & probably best-known as the only original team member to appear in all 18 seasons of the comedy sports quiz, They Think It’s All Over, which ran for 11 years on BBC1 until the final season in 2006.

Rory started off writing for The Dave Allen Show & Alas Smith & Jones in the mid 1980s before moving onto TV in 1989 & appearing as a panellist on Whose Line Is It Anyway? & in two series of Chelmsford 123 which he co-wrote (both for Channel 4).

He has presented many quiz shows & factual programmes on travel, sport & history, including Three Men in a Boat, A Word in Your Era, The Holiday Show, The History Fix (all BBC), Killer Queens (ITV), Bloody Britain & Engineering Britain (Discovery).

Rory has also appeared as an actor in comedy favourites such as Drop the Dead Donkey, Have I Got News For You, Don’t Quote Me & About Face (Central TV) with Maureen Lipman.

Rory completed the second series of Rory & Paddy’s Road of Sport (Channel 5) in which he teams up with fellow comedian Paddy McGuiness to take a bizarre sporting road trip around Britain.  A third series of Three Men in a Boat saw the 3 men start in Dublin travelling the Canals of Eire.

Most recently, he has had great success on ITV1 with The Lakes, this was a 15 part series that took us on a gentle journey around the district where we got to see the lives & events during the summer months.  The series regularly attracted an audience of 4 million viewers weekly.
