He has been in three films: Mike Figgis's Hotel with Burt Reynolds, Oliver Irving's How to Be with Robert Pattinson and Leila Sansour's documentary, Jeremy Hardy v the Israeli Army, which involved a degree of personal risk.
He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper and has written three books: When Did You Last See Your Father, a spoof childcare guide; Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, based on the radio series; and My Family and Other Strangers, an examination of his lacklustre ancestry, published last year.
