Biography Edit

Early Life Edit

Wernham was born in Billericay, Essex. He started his stand-up comedy act at the age of eight, winning his first talent show at eight. He went on to win three more contests. His father, Dave, helps him write his jokes and structure the routine. Wernham's favourite comedians are Ed Byrne, Peter Kay and Lee Evans.

Britain's Got Talent Edit

In 2008, Wernham auditioned for the second series of the ITV talent show Britain's Got Talent in London, where he performed a variety of jokes. Judge Piers Morgan commented that the jokes were terrible but delivered a confident performance. Simon Cowell said that "We've had some rotten comedians on this show, but you're the only one who's made me laugh and told jokes that I could understand". Amanda Holden commented that Wernham has "made her moan". Wernham received three 'yes' votes from the judges and was put through to the next round. He made it through to the live semi-finals.

In the semi-final on 29 May 2008, he performed a stand-up comedy routine. The performance brought largely positive comments from the judges, though Morgan and Holden said that the jokes were "terrible" but that they still loved the act. Cowell compared him to a funny version of Jim Davidson. He failed to make it through to the final.

Acting Career Edit

After the show, Wernham began attending the Sylvia Young Theatre School at weekends. He appeared on the E4 comedy The Inbetweeners in the episode "Work Experience" playing Danny Moore, a pupil who beats up Simon Cooper (Joe Thomas). He also starred in the E4 show School of Comedy, playing several characters. The show began airing on 2 October 2009. He appeared in the third series of Harry & Paul on BBCTwo in late 2010. He also plays Mitchell in the new series Bad Education on BBC 3, written by comedian and actor Jack Whitehall. In April 2016, he guest starred in Holby City for two episodes.
