Richard Hough has written for the stage, television and radio and has seen his work in print. His TV credits include comedy for the BBC (REVOLVER and THE SACK RACE) and factual entertainment for FIVE (DUMBER & DUMBER). He has written extensively for BBC Radio, contributing to LOOSE ENDS, THE NEWS QUIZ and THE NOW SHOW.
