About This Show

Garth Marenghi is a fictional horror author created by English comedians Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade and portrayed by Holness. He is depicted as a conceited hack writer, who remains blissfully (or even wilfully) unaware of his lack of talent. Perrier Award Winner 2001. The word ‘genius’ is much over used, but with Garth Marenghi, ‘The One Man Fear Factory’, the term seems barely adequate. Horror novelist, poet, actor, painter, director, dramatist, visionary. Author of over 50 best-selling chillers including Rupture, The Dank and Eye Sore, his creativity is a shining beacon in a genre that often disappoints.
