Teddy

Background info:
Real name Ross Craig, the name Teddy came at school for being chubby. He was born in Dunfermline in 1979, raised there. Gained an MA in History (Hons) from Edinburgh University. In his first year at University, at the tender age of 18, he began attending comedy workshops run by The Stand Comedy Club and has been performing stand-up gigs ever since. Joined The Comedy Unit production company in 2005 and worked there for two years as writer, broadcaster, script editor, and producer before spreading his wings as a freelancer.

Teddy’s comedy style has evolved through a number of styles over the years, initially self-deprecating, then moving onto edgier comic topics. His current style incorporates true life stories and topical gags weaved together in a darkly comic fashion.
