Paterson Joseph

Paterson is a proper actor. He's been in Shakespeare and everything. Even Casualty.

See? He played staff nurse Mark Grace. That looks like quite a weighty issue of patient-nurse confidentialty he's dealing with there.

He has also appeared in The Beach with Leonardo Di Caprio, and In The Name of the Father with Daniel Day Lewis. His television credits include BBC series Silent Witness, Waking the Dead, Between the Lines and director Danny Boyle's Not Even God Is Wise Enough.

Hardly laugh-a-minute. His theatre roles are pretty meaty stuff too: that big lug Othello, Henry IV, King Lear, as well as a stint in Hamlet in New York.

But luckily for us he also finds time to be very funny indeed. His comedy appearances include Green Wing, Hyperdrive and, of course, Peep Show.

He plays Simon, the hapless contestant in Numberwang, and one of the boffins at the mercy of Raymond Terrific in Big Talk.
