The multi-talented Nick Newman is one of Britain's funniest and most prolific cartoonists. He honed his craft at Private Eye, Punch and The Spectator before joining the paper in 1989. Nick's comedy-writing career began on Spitting Image and he has since written many comedies for television, cinema, radio and theatre, most recently The Wiper's Times - co-written with Ian Hislop - which enjoyed a sell-out UK tour. In addition to his superb drawn cartoons Nick also writes sharp-witted balloon gags for Rod Liddle's column
