How he presents

Rufus has the uncanny gift of getting an audience on his side and he manages to turn run-of-the-mill everyday situations into really funny gags. His ability to think on his feet puts other shows to shame. He is one of the most energetic performers - highly intelligent, observant and likeable.

Original London Cast), Cucumber (Channel 4, 2014), The Wedding Video (Film, 2011), One Man Two Guv'nors (UK Tour & Theatre Royal Haymarket, West End 2012/13), Neville's Island (Chichester Festival Theatre, 2013), appeared in A Touch of Cloth 2 (TV 2013) Big Fat Gypsy Gangster (Film, 2011) and played the eponymous hero in Hounded (CBBC, 2010).
