Some people call him the space cowboy. Some people call him the gangster of love. Some people call him Oliver Izod: star of 'cult classic' BattleActs and musician to Chortle award winning Austentatious. He's a bitch, he's a lover, he's a child, he's a mother, he's a Musical Comedy Awards 2015 finalist.

Izod's alter-ego Baron Fingolfin has had the glittering showbiz career that only a child of an international circus brought up watching re-runs of Big Break and Changing Rooms can have, but has since been thwarted at every turn by a sinister mortal enemy. He has, however, managed to retain relations with the brown haired one from ABBA, Enya, Sandi Toksvig and his best friend Ainsley Harriott. And he sure knows his way around a mean riff on the violin and piano.

This mysterious outsider with an unplaceable accent sets out to reveal the uncomfortable truths behind the biggest cultural movements of the late 20th century through music and comedy, documenting a career of highs and lows whilst always tickling the murky underbelly of pop culture.

Creator, Oliver Izod is a Musical Comedy Awards 2015 finalist, star of cult classic BattleActs and musician to Chortle award winning Austentatious. He has also written and performed for record breaking Edinburgh hit NewsRevue and written for Jenny Bede AAA (BBC3). Oliver is also possibly the first person to appear naked on BBC Radio 4 with Arthur Smith sings Leonard Cohen Vol.2.

Izod trained as an actor at the prestigious East 15 Acting School and has appeared in theatres across the country including The West Yorkshire Playhouse, Hampstead Theatre, Leicester Curve and The Watermill. As a musician he has recorded with the likes of Matthew Halsall and Rachael and the Red Socks. In circus, he has worked with Collectif AndThen and The Ugly Duckling.
