  • Henry Naylor (born 19 January 1966) is a British comedy writer, director and performer, best known for his award-winning writing and for working with comedy partner Andy Parsons in Parsons and Naylor's Pull-Out Sections. He was head writer for Spitting Image, and has written for many shows including, Alas Smith and Jones, Dead Ringers and Alistair McGowan's Big Impression. His work shows helped these shows win numerous awards, including the British Comedy Award, and The Sony Gold. With Parsons, he has performed satirical shows in live venues in Australia and as part of the Edinburgh Fringe. Parsons and Naylor’s Pull-Out Sections broadcast its ninth season on BBC Radio 2 during Spring 2007. A compilation CD was released in 2003. The duo also set up London's first ever comedy sketch club TBA, at the Gate Theatre in the nineties, and in the process helped discover many of Britain's leading sketch performers including Armstrong and Miller, Tony Gardner and the Cheese Shop. In 2008, he created, directed and executive produced Headcases, a satirical ITV show very similar to Spitting Image, but made with CGI rather than puppets. The show won numerous prestigious TV awards - including the RTS for Design and Innovation, and the C21 Award for Best New Sketch Show at Cannes' Mipcom - and was nominated for Best New Programme in the Broadcast Awards. On the live circuit, Henry has been regular at the Edinburgh Festival, performing, writing and directing numerous sketch shows and plays (15 in total). In 2014 he was awarded one of the Festival's highest accolades, the Fringe First. He was also one of the international acts invited to perform at the Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals. His face is also known for playing Rowan Atkinson's sidekick 'Bough' in a series of 17 commercials for Barclaycard. In 2003 he was in the news for throwing a full English breakfast at David Blaine during his Above the Below stunt on the South Bank of the River Thames in London.
