Career highlights

Getting a blowjob at my first ever D&AD Awards.

Favourite TV programme

Family Guy.


The Sunday Times.




The Onion.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

Those subliminal ads for beef jerky, I can't stop buying the stuff. As for one I can actually remember seeing, it would have to be Axion Banner Concerts.

Favourite brand

Emirates, they spend the most.

What’s your concession to the recession?

I have given up naively thinking the City, and country, is run by bright people instead of a bunch of selfish, greedy cocks.

Who would play you in a movie?

Emilio Estevez.

Party trick

The drunker I get, the funnier I become.


Coming up with stupid ideas that I do nothing about, and thinking of funny Tweets I never get round to Tweeting.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

A police truncheon that makes a comedy twang when it hits someone.

You’ve got one last Tweet before you die. What do you Tweet?

\"My name is Sam-u-el and I'll see you all in hell.\"


You've got to love Sam Ball's ability not to take himself, or the world at large, too seriously. A dig in last year's A List (that his creative partner, Dave Bedwood, was the more talented of the two) elicited a graceful, and entertaining letter that claimed they were as equally untalented as each other.


1975, under a wondering star.
