WHO IS HE: So David Mitchell is a British comedian, writer, tv person, and so on.
WHAT HAS HE DONE/MADE: As I write this, I am listening to David read his own autobiography, Back Story. So, Back Story. He also starred alongside Robert Webb in: Peep Show (a UK cultural touchstone), That Mitchell and Webb Look (a sketch show), That Mitchell and Webb Situation (an inferior, yet similar, sketch show [look I’ll be honest, I’ve never understood the difference between these two shows]), alongside Lee Mack in Would I Lie To You (which is a panel show), and shows up on various other shows sometimes (usually by himself).
WHY DO I LIKE HIM (QUALITIES ETC.): Funny, comedy, very good writer, and more too.
