Dylan is a remarkable comedian, somewhat like a jazz musician playing with language, experience and the absurdity of life. His comedy credits include winning the Perrier Award in 1996 at The Edinburgh Festival as well as winning Channel 4 sponsored newcomers comedy competition So You Think You’re Funny, in 1993. He is a seasoned performer at comedy festivals, and his many appearances include The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival and The Kilkenny Comedy Festival. Dylan is also the creative force behind Channel 4’s sitcom hit Black Books, where he appears as Bernard Black, the foul tempered, eccentric and drink-fuelled proprietor of a grubby book shop, who would really rather not have customers if he could help it. Black Books won a BAFTA for Best Sitcom in 2001 as well as a Bronze Rose at The Montreux Festival in the same year.
