Together they are known as "The Right Size," and are the actor/writers of the Broadway comedy, The Play What I Wrote. One critic described it as "full of music hall tricks, in jokes and surreal goonery." It was a hit in London before coming to New York. The duo's work is heavily influenced by Vaudeville and the sight gags of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. Their plays Stop Calling Me Vernon and Baldy Hopkins were hits at the Edinburgh Festival. Their play Do You Come Here Often? was an Olivier award winning comedy in England.
