Andrew Birch – as seen on TV


Not content with seeing his brilliant cartoons appear in magazines and newspapers, Andrew has his sights set on producing comedy gold for a different medium: TV channel Gold, to be precise.

The PCO member’s wonderful Oldie cartoon strip, The Rebel, is now being turned into a TV series. The sitcom follows the adventures of an anarchic pensioner, Henry Palmer, played by Simon Callow.

The actor says: “The Rebel is a wildly funny, edgy and sometimes rather searing new sitcom which could hardly be more now. Henry is very, very angry, and he has much to be angry about: essentially everything in the world around him. He sees himself as a fearless exposer of cant and folly.”

The three-part series will be filmed and broadcast later this year.
